Such an important song for me to write. Such a complicated son-of-a-bitch, too. Loss is only worth embracing if the journey transports you to the other side a little stronger and a little wiser. You'll find out who really cared, and who just played the part on TV. And you'll be surprised. I was. Five years later it still works. Not a hint of being 'of its time'. Which is a good thing.
