I still think of it as amazing that a song can be written just from a simple phrase. In this case, the first line of the chorus is what brought this to the world. It was supposed to be a track about how one person really relies on the other. "You're my life."

Somewhere along the way it became about the pursuit of fame, and its fleeting opportunities. If you don't latch on, someone else will.


I couldn't keep up with that star that you were riding, and I fell down to the earth. I fell straight from the sky. I screamed your name, and you flashed your smile and held out your hand. But I couldn't reach you. Even though I tried. And I tried. And I tried.

If I jumped off a bridge, would you run down and break my fall? And if I ran away and followed you, would you come near me? Would you hear me? Would you say you need me, too?

Do you remember the promise made so long ago when I said I'd always take you with me?

But the tables turn and my life's not worth a Made-for-TV Movie. And your life is in the magazines. And I never see you anymore at all.
