Quite the good day. I wish, though, that I could say it was, indeed, ambiguous and confusing, but it makes perfect sense to me, even if I can't explain it.
And I tried, but really, I think it's just the Parrothead in me having a lark with some lyrics.
Damn if I didn't almost post the same sort of thing almost immediately after, when "Window on the World" came on.
Though there, the girl I'd be asking to stand a little closer
might just have read it and gotten it. Such things are dangerous :)
But really, I can explain a bit of why "Window on the World" speaks to me: it has to do with the first line, and the line about a foreign land.
But especially, it has to do about thinking about someone and not being able to sleep.
Curiously, though, several women in my life could be applied to that song. I'm not sure any would be surprised about it.
Then again, one song often can make me think of several women. There are very few songs that fit with one particular woman.
And with that, I've probably dropped back into "ambiguous and confusing", eh?
