Story behind the song
Eric Levine wrote this song when he was 15 years old, hooked up to a dialysis machine, and thinking about the pretty girl in the next room. Her name was Anne O'Leary, she just had a kidney transplant that was not working well, and she was very depressed. Eric grabbed a piece of paper and wrote out the words and guitar chords. He later sang it for her and it cheered her up for a while. Neither Eric nor Anne is with us anymore, but the song lives on. Let's not let it die.
