Greetings;

http://neoneocon.com/2015/04/03/the-ban ... he-lyrics/

We think we hear another cliched image in the last verse: the singer sees the former lovers’ names inscribed within a heart. But, contrary to our expectations, they’re not carved into a tree, they’re graffiti drawn on a wall. There’s that urban setting again. The drawing of the heart with the names is active and almost sentient (it “finds” a way to haunt him), while the singer remains passive and acted upon. And in that verse’s final line, he tries bravely but unsuccessfully to minimize the entire episode.
bye

I don't agree at all. The song, IMO, is a pretty straightforward love lost ballad.

It does seem a straight-forward song.

Michael Brown (of Left Banke) co-wrote the song at 16 years old. The inspiration was Renee - his bass players girlfriend. His crush would not flourish too much for him.

A tale of unrequited love.

Song is for those who find out their love is a schizoid.The sign is Gemini.
