In "One After 909", i think the line "Railman says 'You've got the wrong location'" is a sly way of saying that this thread has been hopelessly derailed

That took me at least five reads to understand it, and I don't even know why

I will definitley accept my share of the blame for this current derailment. This is what happens when your office decides to stay open on New Year's Eve. I have waaaaaaaaaaay too much time to post today.

And, Von, I think you inadvertantly added an entry to the Zigtionary. When someone derails, we can say they committed a 910.

Too bad there's no gif for that: The railman saying you've got the wrong location for a derailed thread.

Damn, I almost started typing the wrong words accidentally!

Yeah, I started to once again type four as opposed to for. Too much thought going into spelling things wrong the first time must have rubbed off the second time round!

Do you think the girl is still with him in "There's a Place" or is guy remembering a time in his past (maybe to the point of being delusional)?

"There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,"

When I feel low or blue, the last place I want to go is my mind. I have to get outside myself...fast. If I spend too much time in introspection, I just get lower and bluer. I wish I didn't feel this way. I'd like to be able to keep my own self entertained and happy like the guy in the song seems to be able to do. [end of psychological soap box]

Still together for me.  The second verse is the clincher

I think of you,
And things you do,
Go 'round my head,
The things you said,
Like "I love only you."

So when things get to much John (the songwriter) goes off to his room and remembers/thinks of his girl who loves him, if it was the past it would be "things you did".

But he uses "said" instead of "say". So he has one present tense and one past tense. So that's why I'm on the playground seesaw.

Yeah but when you look back at the moment love is first declared you don't think wow she says I love you you think she said I love you. So its a past tense looking back but still ongoing. Like in Things We Said Today the relationship is ongoing ("someday when we're dreaming, deep in love not a lot to say") but they remember what was said previously ("then we will remember Things We Said Today").

I can kind of see your point.

Do we need a time machine for this?
