    General CommentYeah, about running into someone you thought you were over, only to realize you still love the person very much.

    In the duet with k.d. lang, when she first starts in with the chorus, the way she says "crying" is so incredibly powerful. Her voice says it all.

    General CommentI always say that when I hear this song and DON'T get goosebumps, I'll know I am dead.

    So few words to say so much. I've lived this song. It will always be with me.
