Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This song describes a love interest the singer had as a teenager that he never really acted upon and years later he's looking back wistfully on how things from this childhood have changed and how quickly his life (and the opportunity) has passed him by.
The song never reached any of the major charts, but has been used in several movies such as Reality Bites, Orange County and Life or Something Like It. It is considered one of the band's most well known and loved songs by fans.
This was included on Social Distortion's 1998 album Live at the Roxy.
A cover version of this song is playable on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. (thanks, Jeff - Austin, TX, for all above)
