    This song is one of the best, it helped me when my father died. I still remember him every time i hear this. thanks for share.

  • Kevin

    Some of Eddie’s best lyrics with a remarkably simple, beautiful melody from Stone et. al.. For me it is easily Pearl Jam’s most inspirational song.

    Kudos to PBS for picking up this tremendous documentary. Can’t wait to see it again!

  • UNH1995

    This part of the movie turned me into a blubbering fool.
    I don’t know why, it just hit me really hard.

    Well done!
    What a band. What a movie.
