  • Torque from StockholmI like Carly's sassy and charismatic lyrics. The last line of the song eludes my understanding tho. The one with "your Mack truck jumping...". Can anyone explain this line for me? Thanks in advance.
  • Robbie from Elizabethtown, KyI've always imagined this to be about an older couple who have been together for quite a while that bicker and argue but have developed a very strong bond and are still very passionate and romantic.
  • Martyn from Preston, Englandone of my favourite carly simon songs
