It's amazing to me that The Judybats - from Knoxville, TN - weren't a bigger deal than they were. Their music was delightful and deep.
This song, which wasn't a hit for them at all, is a sweet song about depression. The subject matter is a woman who has recently 'up and disappeared' - presumably by suicide. The tailspin she fell into is captured in this song that seems a little too chipper for the subject matter.
Mental health is a real problem, and holidays such as the one being celebrated today can be a trigger. If you or a loved one finds yourself in a situation where suicidal ideations are apparent, please call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) to be connected to a trained counselor at a suicide crisis center nearest you.
