When I read this blog prompt, that lyric from Closing Time popped into my head:
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
So profound, Semisonic. Ha.
I have two memories related to that song.
- Back in 1998, I was a freshman at Mizzou, and I worked as a banquet server at the University Club. That song played so often as we were cleaning up at the end of the night. It felt like our theme song. I’m instantly transported to those memories whenever I hear that song.
- D singing this song with his band and smiling at me when he sang, “I know who I want to take me home.” ❤️
