I think this song gets something at the core of us. It’s about an old lover, but I think you can extrapolate it to many things. We all let go of things or people that are bad for us. But just because we’re better off, it doesn’t mean we miss the person we once were.
This is a good one by Patti, I love the meaning of the song, and if Patti sings it, she puts her own brand on it. I think we all have someone in our past that we miss who we were with them, that is why this song is so good, everyone can relate to it in their own way.
