Isn't something to think somewhere there's a woman who this song is about. I wonder if she's overcome with emotion every time she hears it.

My son lives in East Peoria IL. Last summer he took me to see the store that this happened in. It's really just a convenience store and not the best part of town now, but I still had goosebumps. On the way there, we passed the high school where his father was the Leader of the Band. Great song.

Lost love. Missed opportunitie s . Lives that diverged but forever remain connected by the tether of a once young love. So damned bittersweet.

Perfectly written, just sad enough to be, oh so true, the last two lines kill you

It sounds like thus song has the same affect on lots of folks. Like the others, it reminds mw so much of my first love. It's been 50 years since our high school love affair and I still often think of her. We both thought we would be together forever but that didn't happen. It is so true that you never forget your first love.
