Everyone always assumes this song is about a spouse or loved one, but I think it's a song Ed is singing to himself and his breathy vocal delivery

He's singing to his own vocal chords:
"Yes I know that someday we must go..."
"Stay with meeeeeee...."

:haha:

It's not entirely implausible. Once I found out that "Go" was actually about a pickup truck – and he was able to sing it with that much passion – I figure nothing is off the table with this guy.

I think it's a great "song," but it's just a crappy production on the album, and modern day Ed tends to overdo the delivery so as to make it sound quite treacly. I used to just flat out hate it, but once I heard Willie Nelson's version, it occurred to me that the composition is actually really nice.

Whenever my bros and I finish a new Busch Light beer tower, we pop this on and just slip away.

6 stars.

While it is a bad song, this isn't even the worst song on this album. SAD!

It would be a bad song even by Creed standards, which it sounds like a rip-off from.

i knew i had wildly differing opinions and tastes in music than LV, but that's just inexcusable.
