  • Trist\'n from Cheyenne, WyI love this song simply because it can fit that mood. I'm sorry I don't find it cheesy. This songcame out when I was about 15 when this came out 16 when I really heard it. I'm 24 and I still love the message in this song. It's an emotional song, and you're lucky if you can ever have the emotion she puts out in these lyrics.
  • Angel from Somewhere In, AzSpirit is one of the best CD's. Probably my favorite from Jewel.
  • Jessie Ann from Purchase, NyBeautiful song, but some cheesy lyrics
