Of all the songs IÕve written and all the covers I sing, this is the one I nearly always start an evening of music with. It wasnÕt the easiest song to write: itÕs rarely a good idea to write immediately after a life-altering experience, good or bad. But this song was a way for me to pull something good from the ruins. ItÕs bittersweet, yes, but I think it leans decidely toward the sweet side, partly due to the subtle humor in the lyrics. I guess IÕm more than a little fond of this tune.
Another song from my first CD, this one was written at the end of April and finished on May 2, 1995.
