Maybe people only ask you how you're doin'
'Cause that's easier than letting on how little they can care
But when you know that you've got a real friend somewhere
Suddenly all the others are so much easier to bear
Now to see things clear, it's hard enough I know
While you're waiting for reality to show
Without dreaming of the perfect love and holding it so far above
If you stumbled on to someone real, you'd never know

Jackson Browne, too
Jackson Browne's "The Late Show" hit me at just the right moment. Not right after the Calexico track, but some time later, and it's hard to tell if it caught my mood exactly, or set it.
