Those days are gone forever; I should just let 'em go but,..."And that lead guitar and them percussions, great, great, song.
He appears to be a fairly complex and interesting character and being a lyricist probably read a lot of poetry. One of the most beautiful moments in this song is that haunting guitar solo in the middle that sounds like seagulls crying.
