This song is about as real as it gets for me though it is still fictionalized. I haven't written many songs that cut as close to how I feel as this one. I don't like laying my emotions totally bare and keeping the details clear. The first few lines are what I want in this world, music and a particular someone. The first few lines are on the lines of, will this happen now or in ten years time. The rest of the song is history and conjecture though, as I said, it is slightly fictionalized. I was glad to get Abercrombie Street into a song even if, in reality, it has nothing to do with the actual situation. It feels right and, for a song at least, that is all that counts.
