Musically, this song was inspired by Eric Clapton's "Old Love". Lyrically it gets to the heart of the matter in what's truly important in a relationship that lasts. Making excuses, being selfish and keeping score is a recipe for disaster.
On a larger level, as a Nation, our
ability to have a legitimate dialogue on those issues so important to our mutual future has been damaged by a lack of civility,
mutual respect and finger pointing.
I'm glad this last election proved the wisdom of this observation.
