I'm at an age (38) when I find myself feeling very emotional about lots of things ( a bit like the film Analyse This/That) and I find this song very emotional. I know there is a lot of debate about whether it's about drugs or growing up, I prefer to think of it as a growing up song and the loss of childhood innocence. A truly beautiful song....RIP Mary
