One of the crows best songs
Oh My, here's to... the M-E-M-O-R-I- E - S

with the Greatest--of all... Meaning !!!

Oh Gosh, this very song...it's so Extremely Special--Ind e e d ***
I want to go to California!! ! X D
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.
this son will forever be a part of my crazy/beauti f u l life *

I like Counting Crows, but I think the gym will have less whining tuan this. Later ,Pandora.
beautiful song
Remember being 9 years old, thinking way to much about the heartache of life.. God what a confusing time. <3
Best song by far from the Counting Crows..
I forgive you! You forgive me??? <3<3<3u!!!!! ! ! !
Love the counting crows...
Richard you mean like kindred spirits? Love this song <<<<<<<<3>>> > > > > >
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"
Plays me deep .....pulld my heart strings

One of their best!
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.

this song is classic but, look for it live, it's amazing.
ONe of those songs that sticks with you. 1996? I was 14 and Counting Crows and Dave Matthews were on repeat....he l l 14 years later and they still are, timeless music.

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

I love this song. I love these lyrics.
"i can't remember all the times i tries to tell myself
to hold onto these moments as they pass"

Truly a great song, and some of the best lyrics I have ever encountered. Really moving if you're in hard times.
I love this song its something to think about. while pondering lifes chalenges music like this is an escape from the reality of how fu**ed up our world really is.
One of my oldest favorite songs.
Counting Crows have been there for me for years.

"...and the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearl."

Too true!
very thought provoking
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...

if i could have sex with this song, i would
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."

If your life was film, this is one of the songs you would hope is in the soundtrack.
A lullaby for dreamers; Lennon would have enjoyed this song
No. No it's not.
Stop lying to yourself.
Definitely one of my top 100 all time favorites.
