I always have a soft spot for sad songs. They bring in emotions that most other songs seemingly cannot.
This song is a beautiful song that can invoke powerful imagery or memories. We've all experienced failure, and we've all tasted the bitterness of sorrow. Sometimes we work so hard at something only to find we've lost everything in the process. Perhaps we find that we put everything on the wrong dream, or pinned our happiness to things we shouldn't have.
Perhaps, like the last verse seems to suggest, at least to me, we thought money was the answer, but we find that it can't buy back the time we wasted making it.
A great song, and I really would recommend listening to the original version by Kansas.
