Can you feel it in the dead of night? It's all around but can't be seen Can you hear it in the parking lot? It only speaks when spoken to Can you find it in the marathon? The more you take the more you leave Can you see them in a pane of glass? You know them but they don't know you I can see it now What gets lost but never found? What could fasten two Yet only touches one? Who could make it hurt As much as it did before? (You could tie a string Around the place where it used to show)
I can hear the ocean when I say your name In the yellow hem of the sea's blue skirt You're the last asleep on a one-way train It's been eight years if it's been a day You can see her in a pane of glass You think you know her but you don't You share a family but you don't share a name Some things run deeper than blood
No answers No answers when you're not around

Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
