A most touching video.

--
Everybody knows
It sucks to grow up
And everybody does
It's so weird to be back here.
Let me tell you what
The years go on and
We're still fighting it, we're still fighting it
You'll try and try and one day you'll fly
Away from me

In addition I noticed he married his third wife, Australian (;-) photographer Frally Hynes in 99 , but confirmed his divorce on June 5, 2007 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Folds]

He may write great lyrics, but after his 3rd divorce, I wonder what he's still fighting :-)

I told a coworker that I was a really big fan of Ben's. My coworker said he didn't like his music because it is depressing. I thought about it a while and reallized it was write. The more I analyzed his songs the more I realized patterns of loss, anger, and depression in his music. Personally, I think that he's got some issues with depression and anger. It is a though thing to face up to in life. Hope fully he does. Then maybe he can do a remake of the Brady Bunch's "Sunshine Day." lol
