Awesome song, heard it a 1000 times on the radio, not sure I ever knew the name. Glad Pandora makes it's easy to buy too :)

Love the song. That written, the song kinda deflates, for me, after the verses end & its just the music.

I remember a time when I had my hair dyed bleach blonde, wore my assorted color Chuck Taylors, and an oversized sweatshirt. I drove around in my 1988 Toyota MR2 jamming out to Howard Jones. He spoke to me with his lyrical genius. Now, 20 years have gone by, and I'm still driving my MR2, my hair is falling out from all the dye jobs, and I left my sweatshirt on the floor of some guys house in a drunken stupor. Things can only get better? I think not.
