mav2100 This song is definitely a dark song. It surprised me that it was featured in a children's movie "Shreck". Such a sad occasion to record a song. You are portraying such passion and sincerity, all while maintaining so much control. Absolutely Beautiful, Chet.One of your Bests. I am loving it tonight. Mwahhhhhhhhhhh, Pam
Reply: Pam...I wasn't aware of Shrek using it (and I think I saw it a hundred times with my grand daughter)..but..thanks so much for the listen and kind words...Chet

Cantstopsinging I know this song became very popular especially with those on karaoke sites. Emotional and yet flowing steady.. Fine highs in there at the end too.
