Album: Haughty Melodic (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • The Cuban girl in the first line is a metaphor for heroin. Doughty was addicted to it at one time, and this song is his breakup song, as he puts it. >>

  • Joel from Seattle, WaThis song is cool regardless of what it is about.
  • Greg House from Princeton, NjI always thought this song was performed by either SugarRay or Pearl Jam. Now I know better.
    Also, this was featured on the Grey's Anatomy
    soundtrack. I don't remember if it was on volume one or two but that doesn't really matter. Funny how a particular singer or group can sound one another huh.
