@Cliff: Meaning of Broken Arrow | Reviewer: Joshua | 11/4/11

It's a poetic image, subject to interpretation, of course. I think it means that he is offering his lover his past failed good efforts ("broken arrow") and memories ("bottle of rain") -- an openness or intimacy that he alone offers.

What the hell is meant by "broken Arrow?" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/10

Love the song, but I'm lost on the meaning of broken arrow in relation to the rest of the song. Would you help me. I wrote lyrics in the 70,s when I lived in NYC for a guitarist named Dean Foster, just a couple which is was good enough to put to music and sing it at Carnegie Hall.
