This was from… what? 13 years ago? Oh dear god, that makes me feel old. At any rate, this song is still in my iTunes lineup and every now and then I’ll hear it and think… wow. This makes sense.
When I first heard this, I was all of 21 years old and pretty much the “target” audience. And I would listen and nod thoughtfully because, “yes, this is the truth!”. Now, I’m turning 35 and I listen and while I still “get it”, I think I get it even MORE now. Actually, I know I get it even more now. Not appreciating just how good you look when you’re younger? CHECK. The real stuff to worry about it the stuff you never thought would happen? CHECK. Shoot, the whole thing is a big CHECK. Have you listened to this one lately? Give it a hear. You might find yourself nodding and thinking, “Yes, this is the truth.”
And I’m all about dispensing the truth on some idle Wednesday afternoon.
