Subject: RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
I liked the song when it came out (my teens). Now it seems a bit twee, but I think it is because of the melody. It is too sing songy, which such a topic should not be.

If you just read the lyrics as a poem it is ok, maybe not deep but meaningful especially when I judge it with my teenage angst perspective. Would be interesting to see if a darker melody could be laid on and then sung by a Leonard Cohen like voice.
