I love Eddie from Ohio. (Thank you, Cathy, for introducing me to them.) "Number Six Driver" is one of my favorite songs.* Tonight, I was listening to another song by them, "Gravity," when I had such a startling thought, I had to replay the song several times.
Is this a song about a woman considering suicide? Okay, fleetingly ("You and I both know I'd never jump"), but still...
Or is it an extended metaphor for fear of commitment?
Or, most likely, the woman is just batshit crazy.
I think I may need to go to bed at this point. The fact that my mind equated commitment with suicide has me a bit worried.
*Although I think I may like Robbie Schaefer's version better.
