    This song motivated me to tell my crush I like her. This is what I'm going to do today.

    Wonderful and sad. It reminds me of Natalie Merchant's "Crazy Man Michael".

    I'd say paternal. It sounds to me like its about a father who is being narrated while he grieves over his daughter's disappearance.

    The goosebumps that crawl up my arm when he sings "'cause one day when she goes, she's gone"... That is kinda amazing. I really can't decide if this is about paternal or romantic love.
