wow this song just brought back a feeling i thought i had lost for good. wow. just WOW. it's amazing how memories of one period of your life can disappear despite being so resonant at the time. and then one forgotten song will bring it all rushing back like you're right back there in the moment re-living the entire thing.
Man. I was around 4/5 when this song came out. I, at the time, never thought of it as a romantic love song. Because of that, I always thought of this song as one for my mom. I even would tell her "I love you, always forever". Brings back tons of nice memories.
