Walking By

Andrew McMahon played this song at the Dear Jack show in Los Angeles last November.  Before he began to play, he told us a quick tale about how it was written to win the heart of a girl he’d just met; the woman who would later become his wife.  I found the story sweet, but unrelatable.  I didn’t give it a second thought that night and it hadn’t occurred to me again until about three days ago when it popped into my shuffled playlist.

I get it now.  I really do.  And it breaks my heart.
