I've seen Rachel Yamagata live twice-once when she opened for Ryan Adams and once when she opened for Ray LaMontagne. She seems like she might be the kind of girl you think is really awesome when you meet her but then she turns out to be kind of crazy. There are more of those out there than you think-of both genders.
But her music is another story. I have listened to this song about one million times and I'm still not tired of it. Letting go of someone you don't want to lose plain old sucks and I think this song does a pretty spot on job of capturing the way it feels.
