When I lived downtown in the big city, I played in a band. After practice, I would drive towards the lake with a coffee and just sit. It would be cold, leaf-less, and lonely. And a favourite radio channel of mine, CBC Radio 2, played this song once as I fled the condo towers and sped through bare trees and old homes of High Park. This song is how I felt back then.
I shouldn’t say I was lonely, because I wasn’t, (although I suppose I was). There was a feeling of deep Nostalgia, longing, loss, change.
This song is beautiful, simple, haunting and perfectly captures something I was going through. It helped me, I think, in a weird way, to get through a very weird time in my life. Maybe it will help you too.
