Her window was hung like a painting
She worried it might come to life
She stared for hours
So obsessed was I and self-absorbed

    This is one of the saddest songs ever. "Woke up sad from this dream I've been having the last couple nights or so; with her father and brothers, we're all at the funeral carrying a box through the rain. Then somebody says that it's always been this way... " So poignant and heartbreaking <3 [2] This verse haunts me..

    This is one of the best Ben has ever written, I wish the nostalgia of this song could be present in his most recent albums.

    Oh, how nice. Ben just played this per request in Chicago last night, and this morning I pop into last.fm and its the FIRST song that I get to hear.

    Would love to see Folds get back to the days of more great ballads like this song and superb albums like Rockin' the Suburbs. Way to Normal was mediocre (especially for Mr. Folds).

    The vocal melody is surrounded by this gorgeous piano accompaniment- its so understated, which just makes the track even better.

    Woo, it has my name in it. It's also strangely kind of nearly accurate. Awesome.

    I'm always grateful for what Ben Folds songwriting has given to me and the genre. A master.
