Recording information by sweetangel226GOLD

From wikipedia: On the album Ben Folds Live, Folds explained: "People ask me what this song's about... I was asked about it a lot, and I didn't really wanna make a big hairy deal out of it, because I just wanted the song to speak for itself. But the song is about when I was in high school, me and my girlfriend had to get an abortion, and it was a very sad thing. And, I didn't really want to write this song from any kind of political standpoint, or make a statement. I just wanted to reflect what it feels like. So, anyone who's gone through that before, then you'll know what the song's about."

This Song Is Close To My Heart Because A Friend Of Mine Had An Abortion,Her Boyfriend Threatened to leave her,If it were me I Would Have Let Him go,They aren't together Anymore Going on 10 years now And She Told Me If she had to do it all over again She would have had the baby,Still to this day she still blames herself and if wishes things were different,I Know Some woman Have no choice Like if They were raped OR don"t have the money to care for a baby,I Feel So Bad for women who are Are Ever in this situation,Condoms are way cheaper Than a Baby, So I hope they think about this in the future,Because Abortion Is something you will Never Forget,The guilt Still Eats Away At my Friend,She Has Never Forgiven Herself And She Wonders Who that little person Would Be Today(IT WAS A LITTLE GIRL BTW)When I Think About Those Young Ladies OR Young Girls,I think how unfair That There Are Women Out There That Can't Have Children Who Would Love a to Be A mother My two kids Are My Life,I am so glad god chose me to be their mom And I Was Only 16 Years Old When I had my oldest And I had plenty of people tell me I was Way too Young,I should Abort They Said,For Me that Was Never An Option Even Though I Can't Have Children normally,I Had To Have c-sections With Both.I Would Change Nothing,I Am Glad I didn't Listen To Those That Said A child Would ruin My life Because Look At What I would Have Missed Out On

Your story is so heartwarming. Children are such a blessing.My youngest left home a few days ago to move into his new house and I'm struggling with the empty nest syndrome now Can't wait for grandkids now

Another gorgeous sing on this beautiful song.

Beautiful vocals and the story is quite deep. The trauma of something so permanent and so final is something to seriously consider. Thanks for sharing.
