I think of my son with this song, for obvious reasons to some. What I try not to think of is the Alabama version of this song, sitting on the side of the road in a car, holding onto the only man I have ever loved, while his world crumbled around him for the first time, on a summer night that will never leave either of our minds. Now, you tell me again what the "reality" is. Tell me again what was/is "right". And I'll tell you all the reasons that started right there, in that moment, and all the ones that followed.
