I loved the Counting Crows, but they went so hard downhill after this album. The third is just barely tolerable and it just got worse from there imo.

There's something nostalgic about this song and Counting Crows all together that reminds me of the 90's and growing up.

There is something very special here. I don't know what. Perhaps that it is the simple fact that my spirit knows yours. ??? ttt Don't e afraid.

Love this song. Makes me think of my dad who passed away in December of 2007. "The smell of hospitals in winter And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters but no pearls"

Love this song, but I cringe every time I hear those 'yeahs' at the end; I wonder how that made it into the final cut.

Yeah, Stormy. I know what you mean. The line "If you think that I could be forgiven, I wish you would." always stings!

This song makes me sad, because it reminds me of my best friend who's sister (who he had raised on his own) died while he was away. There was so many things he didn't get to say...

I love this song its one of my favorites and I love the lyrics to it also so sad and poignant and how he says about the things he should have done: "And its been a long December, and there's reason to believe, Maybe this year will be better than the last, I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself, To hold on to these moments as they pass,And it's one more day up in the canyon, And it's one more night in Hollywood, It's been so long since I've seen the ocean..I guess I should."
