    "lots of talent in these youngsters but no staying power" Says you. I've had this song stuck in my head for several years, JUST NOW finding out who it was by.

    The end of the song is a little shocking the first time you hear it. Absolutely fantastic.

    what a great story to would make a great short novel how sad though and you can just feel the raw emotions from all who are playing and singing the song great.
