    And it's funny because the first time I heard this song, which was a very long time ago back in the 90's, I loved it, it meant something but I didn't know what exacly. I also didn't know it was written by Eddie for his father back then.
    Then my dad died in 1998 and I remember the first time I heard after that I cried my ass off cause it reminded me of my dad so much and it became that PJ song for me, you know? I get emotional just by thinking about it.
    Then I found out the meaning of that song for Eddie. It blew my mind.

    :D I took the lyrics as literal advice, moved 200 miles, changed careers, started living life... Pearl jam give the best advice. Other tracks that mean a lot to me- Beegirl, Life wasted, Breakerfall, Sometimes, Small town, habit, Sleight of hand, In hiding, Release .. so many.
    Sometimes I speak of nothing at all.

    It will always be Indifference

    "Judge yourself if you feel the need
    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

  • Just Breathe. My mother passed away on September 4th. She had lost her hearing some time ago, so I would write out lyrics to songs I knew she loved, or knew she would love if she could hear them. About 6 months ago I had given her the lyrics to Just Breathe. It meant the world to her so I requested it to be played at her memorial service so she could hear it as she made her way to heaven. The song meant a lot to me before that, now it means the world to me!

    I miss you, Mom...

    Right now, for me, it's Footsteps. Like so many PJ songs, it rings true.

  • Too many really, as a previous poster said, different times in my life give importance to different songs.
    Just Breathe and Man of the Hour will have a special place forever.
    From the first time I heard Man of The Hour it reminded me of my grandfather, a larger than life figure who meant so much to so many different people for so many different reasons. When he passed away in May it just seemed so fitting "a snowflake falls in May". I decided I wanted to speak at his funeral (very out of character of me as I have been somewhat terrified of public speaking) and used a line from Just Breathe in the speech and closed it by saying "The Man of the hour has taken his final bow, this is just goodbye for now"
  • ALIVE

    In November of 1991, I was hit by a truck while crossing a street - I was an avid runner - miraculously, I survived with two broken legs, fractured ribs and vertebrae. THIS song became my creed as I healed and the doctors told me if I were lucky enough to walk again, it would be with a severe limp & complications. Above the expectations of many, I not only walked again, but climbed Mt. Warning In Australia eight months later!

    Knowing the actual meaning of the lyrics did not alter my love for the song. For me it meant, and still does at age 45, that I am ALIVE - against numerous odds, I'm still alive - Thank you Pearl Jam, you have inspired me ever since!

    I think Rearview Mirror is probably the most important to me lyrics wise. I have always loved Oceans though. ;)
