Here's what Clare had to say about this piano-led tune: "It feels negative - but it isn't. It's about meeting a girl and having this amazing bond. You want to chill out and not make bad things happen. But then they do happen…"
Alex Clare is now married to the person this song addresses. He told MTV News in late 2012: "I wrote the song initially just after meeting them and then I sent it to them and was like, 'Hey, I just wrote this song. What do you think?' And she seemed to get the message. Fast-forward to a bit later and we're married, which is cool."
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
