Sound Track Bonus

One of Dev's favorite songs is "Cars Hiss By My Window", which starts "The cars hiss by my window/like the waves down on the beach (2x)/I got this girl beside me, but she's out of reach". Two out of three lines are an apt description of Dev's situation. <spoiler>He does seem to have some interest in Erin, although she being out of reach is not a major plotpoint, she says that, if it weren't for Tom, she'd be with Dev.</spoiler>

Is there a trope for that?
