Given to Fly” off of the Yield album. 30 Years Pearl Jam 1990-2020 thank you for the memories signature shirt I never got into Pearl Jam when they were “big” I found them to be too mainstream for my taste, so I never gave them a fair shot. I think I was driving somewhere and that song came on. I didn’t know it was Pearl Jam until Vedder started singing. I was about to switch the station, but something in the music drew me in and compelled me to continue listening. And I loved it. I so wanted to hate it, but it blew me away. What I love about the song is how it starts off lowkey, then builds gradually. I love the melody and I love the way Vedder slowly increases his range. His control is pretty amazing.

Best 30 Years Pearl Jam 1990-2020 thank you for the memories signature shirt
The overall gist of this song is about how someone was 30 Years Pearl Jam 1990-2020 thank you for the memories signature shirt everything to another at some point in time, but now it`s just faded memories and painful dreams. How they both gave all that they had in this, but now it doesn`t even matter as it`s all over. He is so caught up in the past that he has forgotten the reality and even the most innocent events (children`s playing in the park) cannot bring a smile to his face. The best part of this song is the last few lines where he knows she is gone and will be happy with someone else, at the same time he wishes she could be with him. This pain is what has turned everything around him, the pictures, the memories, all of it, dark and black.
