Have you ever experienced a breakdown in communication with someone, and felt like if only the two of you could have an un-guarded, ego-free conversation, all would be healed? Peter Gabriel strikes to the heart of the matter in this incredible song – one of my favorites.
Here is one song, recorded in three different eras, with somewhat different connotations. (The first is with Paula Cole, the second with is Peter’s daughter Melanie; the third is with Bon Iver). Powerful stuff.
