What about Tears?...it's quite clearly a romantic ballad about love and loss, particularly the "my body was weak, for you...the truth" line.

Al and GED are clearly great friends. Are they really that good of friends with Neil? I’m not so sure.
i think that all three were probably closer friends in the earlier days but then they grew apart especially as neil started to lose interest in music and regard it more as a way of making money than a calling while meanwhile al and ged were still just as passionate about music as they ever had been.
Neil seems hard t9 get to know
Understatement of the year.
It’s only in reply to those that buy the thought that Neil joined the band and they all became besties. It’s more likely he sat alone reading a lot and working on lyrics and riding bikes than goofing around with a couple guys that had been friends for 10+ years but maybe that’s an understatement
I think that's probably the way it's always been, but they still travelled together in the early years and were able to have that bonding experience. Once Neil started traveling separately on his bike for these tours, that's probably when it really started to change. How could it not? Alex and Geddy together all the time, Neil meeting them at the concert saying hi and then taking off again. It's pretty telling and creates a better understanding of the communication within the band, or lack of it with Neil.
Alex and Geddy are just on a different friendship level, knowing each other since junior high, living close to each other, etc. Neil probably felt like he really liked the guys, but also had to get away especially on tour. Let's face it, after 40 years with someone, the friendship or bond with someone is kind of tapped out and there's nothing new to discover. If they enjoy working together after all that time, that's probably the best anyone could expect.
