A Mind With a Heart of Its Own
Play • 19 min

I do wonder whether the friend who’s treehouse he’s slept in is the same girl from the opening verse. There’s almost a Forrest and Jenny vibe to it if you link those two verses. “She never looked different but something would change” is later in the timeline, and the later treehouse reference snaps you back to a more innocent time. I know that this isn’t the case because the third verse is ad-libbed, but hey, it’s fun to paint your own pictures on the canvas that Tom provides sometimes so I’m going with it!

Today’s episode covers the penultimate track from side two of Full Moon Fever, A Mind with a Heart of Its Own.
