This song is about a woman who is in pursuit of happiness but never gives anything a long enough time to make her happy. She gets bored too easily - she's flighty, or indifferent. (thanks, Catherine - New England)
Radio stations usually played an edited version omitting the last verse. This verse pretty well sums up what the whole tune is about...
"Everyday in your indigo eyes
I watch the sunset but I don't see it rise
Moonlight and stars in your strawberry wine
You'd take the world but you won't take the time"
(thanks, Beatleant - Toronto, Canada)
This was written by band members Steve Cash and Larry Lee. It's inspired by someone they met in Los Angeles who was strung out on drugs. (thanks, Lori - Springfield, MO)
Smashing Pumpkins covered this song. Their version shows up on various rarities and compilation albums. (thanks, Kain - Charleston, SC)
