"The song is about Mark's real friend Michael, who basically vanished one day and Mark never heard from him again. One day Red House Painters were playing a show, and when they went backstage, Mark saw Michael. I guess Michael tracked him down or something. They went to perform the rest of their set, then they asked what song to play. Someone in the audience yelled out "Michael!" so they played it. Mark saw Michael weeping in the front… read more

    Weird to think that inside Mark Kozelek there's this dude who can write some of the most affecting music out there.

    this song makes me want to cry. imagine someone thinking about you when you're away so passionately. Makes you wonder if anyone who you don't know anymore still cares about you and recalls all the memories of the time you spent together. I especially love the part where he was talking to Michel's old triple x girlfriend and he said that he didn't know that Michel ever lost his mind. That could mean that Mark doesn't see him as crazy and just a cool and normal guy. I wish I had friends who I could relate to like that. This song fills me with so many emotions.
