I first heard this song at a HiGh ScHoOl GrAdUaTiOn sung by a group of SeNiOrS. What made this song so PoiGnAnT and left an ImPrEsSiOn was the fact that they had experienced, first hand, how short life can be. One of their classmates had died the previous year of cancer. They dedicated this song to her.
I especially love the words:
“…and I loved DeEpeR and I spoke SwEeTeR and I gave ForGivEnEss I’d been denyin’…”
Thanks for the lesson Humboldt High School Class Of 2005.
