I've heard that before. It would make sense if that was the time period it was written.

Tom Petty?

If that's who you meant, am I the only one who thinks they never really had a relationship? I think they might've been flirty sometimes but I don't think it ever turned into anything or anything serious happened. Maybe I just want to believe there was someone she didn't sleep with.

And the Dallas Taylor relationship was all kinds of wrong. It freaked me out a little when she was talking about it like this grand romantic thing. I'm pretty sure it's something you can get fired for.

"she gets on a midnight plane, she's done it a thousand times" reminds me of her stories of the Lear jets Henley would send to pick her up (the little cranberry colored jet...etc. She has in fact done it a thousand times )

"When love starts out in the darkness..." Again, relationships kept secret.... Mick, Dallas Taylor, Tom, etc etc...

"she spends every day, waiting for the day, when everybody finds out" all those secret affairs that won't make people (wives, girlfriends, whoever) happy.

you get the idea.
Mick is the first thought I had the first time I heard this song especially with the line, "affairs of the heart that start out in the dark, usually stay with the night". However, as with many of Stevie's songs, I think it's about multiple things.

I'd love to see it in the setlist. I think it's a great dance number. Most of the audience won't know it, but it's less likely to make them rush for the concession stand than an unknown ballad is.

I was always under the impression that this song was largely targeting Kristen. Was this song written before 99? I thought the "affairs in the dark" part referenced Kristen getting pregnant. That LB doesn't really love Kristen but Stevie, but he's stuck because of the kids. The second verse is targeted more at LB.
Overall basically a he doesn't really love you the way he loved me, and pssss...he still does that sure gotta piss you off.

I could be way off, but when you look at it through that lenses it's a pretty cutting song.

The working title was Monica. She calls it that in the Destiny Rules doc.

I will always love my ex, but I don't want to be anywhere near him most of the time. And I'm not at all, 'in love' with him.

.......And, I applaud any man that would come after me. It's a lot of work dating him.

Oh. anywhere we can baby, any time we can get away ... I think that line was taunting Kristen too. I don't think there's anything going on with them now and hardly feel they're still "in love", but I think there was something in 1997 and that a slew of songs emerged from it.

Please,the cynical side in me say they can't even be in the same room together now!

The man had been married for almost 20 years. Give him some credit!

To analyze Stevie's lyrics is useless. I think sometimes she doesn't even know who's the owner of each of her songs.

But I also think something happened in 1997... and then he got married!
