but Paul Simon’s pretty good at them

And she said losing love
Is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you’re blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow

It’s rare to find words that really resonate like these. Especially “blown apart”. Just thinking about those words brings laughter and tears all at the same time, because it just feels so accurate.

There’s this later part in the same song (Graceland, by the way), which made more sense this time around than it has ever before:

There is a girl in New York City
Who calls herself the human trampoline
And sometimes when I’m falling, flying
Or tumbling in turmoil I say
Whoa, so this is what she means
She means we’re bouncing into Graceland
