The Fray: "Over My Head (Cable Car)"
And suddenly I become a part of your past
I'm becoming the part that don't last
I'm losing you and its effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
This is one of those songs where bits of the lyrics stick with you but break through the clouds in some way every time you hear it on the radio. I think it's about having to cut certain friends or lovers, or being cut because someone "trades up," dishonesty between people, using people or discarding them when you're done with them and marveling over how the wreckage doesn't seem to matter. Something like that.
