Songfacts®:

  • In this song, the singer's girl is angry with him. He has tried his hardest the forget about her but has not been successful. The song is about how no matter what, he will always wait for her to come back to him even if it is until he dies. "I still hang on every word, in a world of faded memories where you're still in love with me." >>

  • The line, "I can see it in your eyes, you look as if your Major Tom has lost control" is a reference to the David Bowie song "Space Oddity," where Major Tom cuts off communication and drifts into space.
