What a beautiful song, and this just makes it even better. One of my favorites.
"I sensed my lows before I even learned to speak", thank you Billy for that lyric... glad I'm not the only one to have felt that way as a little boy. "I forget to forget nothing is important", so true that in the long scheme of things...
this song means so much to me. it has stuck with me since the 90s and if i'm in a good mood or a bad mood it's there for me. i've listened to this song for 12 hours straight when i'm depressed, and i've sung along with it when i want to feel whimsical in a dark way. billy just speaks so much through his music.
