One of my close friends died this past year at the young age of 19. She had a heart condition and never knew it. Since the moment I first heard this song after her death, I haven't been able to listen to it without crying. And even more recently, I lost my daughter due to a miscarriage. I was around 20 weeks into the pregnancy. At her funeral this song was continuously playing in my head.
I have a brother named Sam and he died of Aids at the tender age of 16. We were really devastated but at the same time we were kinda expecting it cause he had been sick for a while before he died. Sam was gay and he never had a boyfriend or maybe he had but did not have the chance to introduced him to us. Anyways i heard this song and i think it really sums up his life and what we would have said or felt during the final hours of his life. I actually heard this song from the radio the moment the line went flat and insisted on playing it on the funeral..
