Song History
All band performances of this song (including the studio cut) contain an interpolation of the Temptations' "I Wish It Would Rain" after Dave sings the "and it began to rain" line.

On Before These Crowded Streets this song's writing credits go to Dave, Stefan, and LeRoi; however, later live releases give credit only to Dave, with a copyright date of 2002. The reason for this discrepancy is unclear.
