Song History
With chord progressions similar to "Crash Into Me", this song was briefly known as the 'new song' during the Summer 1996 tour even though it was only played three times. Occupying a slot in between 'Dancing Nancies' and 'Warehouse', it was thought to have evolved from the Rain Intro of that same tour. However, it is clearly a different song.

The title was named by fans/tapers and is taken from the last lyrics of the last version of song, on 6.22.96.

An interesting note: The lyrics for 6.21.96 contain eerily revealing references to Dave's personal experiences with his family.

[thanks to Chris Oberlin, Christine Baginski, and Patrick Anthony Westgate for their initial research into this song]
