I remember when I was really little, like 6 or 7, this song would make me totally sad. but in a dramatic way… epic sad… standing on a mountaintop in a cape sad. When it came on I would demand that everyone around shut up so that we could all listen to the song and be sad together. I was an emo little fuck.
I also thought that the girl’s name was Galveston, which didn’t strike me as odd at the time.
