Writing/Essay/Journal
This haunting song tells a story. We repeatedly hear that “northern lights through the windshield lead me onto the snowfield.” We know that something happened 13 years ago which the singer regrets and we understand his wish that the other person involved could have had another or a better life.

The music creates a mood, but the story remains unclear. Write about what you think happened. Finish the story that the song begins.
