Years ago a friend of mine gave me a mix tape with this song on it. It tells a burning love story that has no end. The kind of love that usually crashes and burns.
One day in 2006 I met my “young James”. ‘Tis true, my heart did thump at remembering what turned out to be the prophecy of the song.
Years later “young James” turned out to be a flesh and blood person, not the ideal of the fantasy such figures hold in our minds. Yet he turned out to be so much more — and less.
Though he and I have parted ways, he and I shared and will always remember our love story with no end.
