The most beautiful description of remembering loss. I agree with the "I hear you laugh and beg me not to dance" sentiment. The imagery there is very strong. This song always makes me reflect on the people that have slipped away over the years.
Tori opens her heart and her intimacy and brings the emotional and confessional to a whole new level on this song... I have never lost a close relative before, but everytime I listen to this song, I feel her grief and the feeling of missing all the good memories from her beloved brother. Makes me cry everytime I listen to this. And, btw: the line of Mr. Bojangles for me is the saddest one, I always picture her brother and whatever-mr-bojangles-is (I like to believe it's the name of their childhood dog or something nostalgic and familiar like this) in the afterlife. :p
