This song is a particular favorite of Outlaws founding member Henry Paul. It holds a very special place in his heart: "I really love that song," Paul says. He wrote it about "my girlfriend, you know that first big one that you get when you're in high school? She moved to Ohio after she graduated from high school, and it was just like me trying to make it in the music business and wanting to ride back into town as a big star and sweep her off her feet and get her back. And I've had a lot of success with that song."
In fact, it was because of this song that he was able to reconnect with his lost love. Says Paul, "Oh my God, it rekindled this incredible love affair. That woman and I would rekindle that love affair almost like clockwork every ten years. It was a reoccurring sort of theme right up 'til somewhat recently, at which point we figured out that it wasn't so much her and I, it was more the time in our life. God, I loved that girl. I just loved her."
Paul: "It's a song that I'm going to re-record probably this year (2007). And it's a song that got into some Keifer Sutherland movie and made me some money, and it's also a song that touches a lot of people from our old fan base, they really love that song. And I know how to sing that song better now, and I'm going to go out and re-record that and I think make that a priority of mine." (Check out our interview with Henry Paul
