Considered by Paul Simon to be the best song he ever wrote.

According to an article in the London Times, this is an account of Paul Simon's marriage break-up with his first wife Peggy Harper. The nine-year-old "travelling companion" he refers to is their son Harper, who three years later, at the age of 12 accompanied his father on the Graceland tour. (Source Graceland Songfacts).

    "She comes back to tell me she's gone. As if I didn't know that. As if I didn't know my own bed. As if I never noticed, the way she brushed her hair from her forehead. And she said, 'Losing love is like a window in your heart. Everybody sees you're blown apart. Everybody sees the wind blow.'" Nobody writes lyrics like Paul… no one. [2]
