I think this is a beautiful song.  It very tenderly describes the most difficult aspect of being in love with someone.  The reality that your wishes, feelings, and desires are only half of the equation, and sometimes have no bearing on what actually happens in the relationship.  It is the anguish and anxiety that precede heartbreak.  I love sad songs.

I should probably offer a disclaimer along with my recommendation of Wilco.  The first being: they are a secular band, and the second:  I like weird music.  That being said, Sky Blue Sky is the most main-stream, melody driven album they have produced so far.
