I am so sorry, KillYourTV. My mother was going to force me to have an abortion if I was (didn't turn out to be) pregnant. Lovely, huh? Happy Mother's Day, not really. We don't speak now. I also have guilt about giving my pregnant best friend a ride to the clinic, but she would have found a way if I didn't. Still, though, feel somehow responsible. Life has some wild hairpin turns. I also had a spontaneous miscarriage before my only child was born, and think about how old they'd be.

God, this version is beautiful

Oh i guess thats exactly what this songs about Except split into a story about the singer and of his bestfriend, both being my own. Whatever

Reminds me of my ex, she died 6 months ago in the struggle against addiction. I dont really know what this songs exactly about but gah i wish we kept that kid we were gonna have in highschool. Feels like just yesterday now more than ever. My kid would be almost 6. Sorry guys, needed to vent

I'm really digging this version, breathes new life into the song! Don't get your panties all in a bunch just b/c someone does a cover of a song. Hearing a different version may lead someone to wish to hear the original version that has never heard it before & who otherwise might never have heard of it. Plus, it's a huge compliment to a band when another band covers their song. A different version might speak to someone more, open their eyes & cause them to feel the deeper meaning of a song.

I like this version, it sounds like how one might recount the story at older age; when melancholy replaces despair.

Not a good cover of this song. Lacks so much of the passion that BVA put into writing it.... Listen to any version by the original artist.

Original is better. This isn't bad... Just no emotion

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now that you've started reading dont stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes and your lovers name will come up on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

To Kalani, The Verve Pipe are the original singers of this song. Hopefully you come back and see this :)

I actually like the translation. The original is better, of course, but this is kind of cool, and if I heard it this way first, I would have still liked it.

NOOOO,
he doesn't sound bad but the original is much better hands down

One of my all time favorite songs, I was horrified when I heard this version. Terrible.

Damn.. My fav song

I was a Freshman in college when this came out and was in a destructive relationship . I love this song because it reminds me the love/hate relationship I had with my bf at the time. But I like the Verve Pipe's version.

I love it! What's it about though, like I know the basic but what is the underlying message?
Report as inappropriate
UHHH The Verve Pipe released The Freshman in 96, a whole year before anyone had any idea who Creed was...so to say that it was Creed inspired is not accurate.
Report as inappropriate
Agreed, MUCH better than the original. A more honest take without the Creed- inspired posing. Funny how a producer can ruin a song huh?
Report as inappropriate
Beautiful. This is a really great cover; better than the original, in my opinion. Brings tears to my eyes.

Whether you like this version or the original better, you have to give him credit for one thing---maki n g it his own. A good cover is a different take (emotionally , musically) on a song. Otherwise, it might as well be the original.
