I’ve been listening to this song for a few weeks now. It almost feels like a play book of most of my past, failed relationships.

At first glance, the lyrics seem to point to one-sided blame. A man using a woman, needing and rejecting her all at once.

The truth, though, is that she is also guilty of some things. Of being sucked dry. Of continuing to bring him to safety. Of waiting for him to return from Wonderland.

See, if he’s anything like the people I’ve been with, he’s better than this. He’s capable of so much more love, of selflessness, of generosity.

Neither of them see their own worth, because they are so consumed with both needing and envying the value of the other.

Lord, teach us to love.
