This song is about a girl who breaks up with her boyfriend and all she leaves him is a big blue note.

Keith said of this song: "I've never written anything quite like it. It's just one of those things that happens to you as a songwriter. You're going to write enough of them that one's going to end up psychedelic or something. It went where it went. It's a great "dear john" letter song. The title came out somewhere and it's kind of a recitation. The last verse just ties it all together. He folds that note up into a paper airplane and says if it don't come back he'll accept the fact that she's gone. I like to say on those that we happened to be the only writers up that night when that one floated by."
