I was driving somewhere with my son (Alex) who was four at the time. Heroes came on my ipod and i hit replay once it was over. Alex asked me, "Dad why do you like this song?" And I told him that it reminded me of friends I lost touch with and made me think of times in the past when I acted differently than I did now. He didn't say anything for a bit then told me "That's not what this song means to me at all".
