This ballad about heartbreak is personal to Danika Portz. "That song is based on a true story," she told Billboard magazine. "I've noticed in my writing that the more personal and specific that I get, the more universal that people are able to connect with it."
"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.
