The Story (Of Who I Am)

No, you will have to wait for that story -my story- for another couple of decades.

This is about The Story – a new song by the talented new artist Brandi Carlile.

These days I catch myself having played the same song over and over again before realizing the double digits on my iTunes/iPod playcount. That happened with The Story.
