Time Won't Let Me Go

Album: The Sun and the Moon (2007)
  • The lyrics: "Never had a summer of '69, never had a Cherry Valence of my own" are a reference to the book The Outsiders. 1969 is the year of which it takes place, and Cherry Valence is one of the main characters. >>

  • Hans from Boston, MaKind of rips off "Accidents Never Happen" by Blondie...
  • Zulu from Victor, NyThis song is amazing. It reminds me so much of summer and how hopeless and boring they can be sometimes. But it also reminds me of how you wish you could go back and change things.
  • Ollie from Fredericton, NbI saw the bravery live and the lead singer said that his favourite book was the outsiders and that the book inspired him to write this song.
  • Alistair from Geelong, AustraliaI always thought the summer of 69' referred to Bryan Adams song?
    I think everyone can relate to this song in one way or another...
  • Austin from Boston, MaBrutally honest song about life and not getting what other's have. Song reminds me of me.
