This song was played for the President at his Christmas event in 2010, by the duo. Magnificent setting, beautiful, haunting words and melody. It's very personal to me, as I 'watched' it with my husband, but not sitting together, rather on the phone 'together', since we weren't together in peace and love during that time. But it wasn't for lack of wanting our love to work. So, yes, this song is the epitome' of our lives then, as we oh so wanted to figure out 'how to keep love alive'. He was African American and this president was of particular importance to him and me. He was an important figure too in American history, having been one of the first African Americans to work for a President (Carter) as one of the top 10 staffers. I think of that moment on the phone, listening and watching it simultaneously with him in a different town and place, as the most poignant sad moments of my life. We always watched the Washington dc Christmas together, just not able to that time, and sadly, nor any other times since then. This song was our love that was in struggle, trying to grow in snow. It never bloomed again, as he was taken from me by disease and stress. So, yes, it's a beautiful song about unrequited, unattainable love. The message is to not let that happen to you, from me and from Sara, in my opinion.

This song played during my middle-schools rememberance day performance, during the drama's peice. Because of this, I myself see this song as a reflection of what the wives felt when left at home during ww1, specifically during winter. I also see this song as a reflection of my feelings towards a cirtain boy who played a role in that bit. He pretended to be one of the soldiers that was gunned down during a fight, and even from the choir-side I felt a blow as hard as though he really had died. He will never know how I feel about him, so I think the line "you're not where you belong; inside my arms" is very fitting.
