  • ONE THING LED TO ANOTHER AND WES'S PHONE RANG AND HE GOT THE
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:27.100
  • GIG. HE PERFORMED WITH KIM HILL AT THE RETREAT. AFTER SHE MADE
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:31.210
  • HER FIRST RECORD, SHE RANG WES'S PHONE HERSELF. -AND SO, WHEN I
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:38.290
  • GET A PHONE CALL AT SOME POINT FROM KIM, AND SHE'S LIKE, HEY,
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:42.180
  • I'M GOING TO AUSTRALIA. DO YOU WANT TO GO AND TOUR WITH ME AND
  • 00:01:42.190 --> 00:01:50.030
  • MOVE TO NASHVILLE? SO, MY FIRST SHOW WAS OPENING FOR YOU AND AMY
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:56.100
  • IN FRONT OF ABOUT 40.000 PEOPLE UP IN SOME FESTIVAL UP THERE.
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:02:02.090
  • AND ME AND KIM ON GUITARS. I MEAN, I GO FROM, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:04.230
  • PLAYING AT CHURCH CAMPS TO OPENING FOR THIS GUY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:09.200
  • JUST OUT OF NOWHERE! SO, I TOURED WITH KIM FOR ABOUT TWO
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:12.190
  • AND A HALF YEARS, AND THEN WAS SIGNED WITH REUNION RECORDS AND
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:18.220
  • THAT'S WHEN MY FIRST RECORD CAME OUT. -HE COULD PLAY THE GUITAR!
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:23.180
  • I WAS GOING, WOW, WHAT IS THAT? AND, OBVIOUSLY, REMEMBER, I
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:29.100
  • THINK I ACTUALLY PROBABLY REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I MET
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:30.290
  • HIM, PROBABLY. IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AT THAT FESTIVAL. THEN,
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:33.160
  • OBVIOUSLY, WE KIND OF GOT TO KNOW EACH OTHER WHEN WE BECAME
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:36.100
  • LABEL MATES. SO, YEAH, AND WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS EVER SINCE. AND
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:41.290
  • GOTTEN TO DO A LOT OF LIFE TOGETHER, ESPECIALLY, IN THESE
  • 00:02:42.000 --> 00:02:44.230
  • LAST COUPLE DECADES; VERY GRATEFUL. -WES PARTED WITH HIS
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:49.010
  • RECORD LABEL AND WONDERED WHAT WAS NEXT. HE RAN INTO MICHAEL W.
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:52.170
  • SMITH AFTER AN EVENT IN FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE AND MICHAEL
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:55.090
  • INVITED HIM TO PLAY ON A TRACK THAT MICHAEL HAD WRITTEN THAT
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:59.000
  • ENDED UP BEING ABOUT THE TRAGIC MASSACRE AT COLUMBINE HIGH
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:02.200
  • SCHOOL. -SO, I WAS, YOU KNOW, I'D LEFT SPARROW BECAUSE, YOU
  • 00:03:02.210 --> 00:03:08.130
  • KNOW, JUST SOME DIFFERENCES OF OPINION WE HAD, AND I WAS
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:13.060
  • TELLING MY WIFE, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GONNA BE FINE. I CAN WRITE
  • 00:03:13.070 --> 00:03:16.170
  • SONGS, I CAN PLAY ON RECORDS. AND I'M WALKING BACK AND MICHAEL
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:20.070
  • SAYS, WES! I WAS, LIKE, HEY, MICHAEL! WHAT ARE YOU DOING? HE
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:23.060
  • GOES, HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I'M LIKE, OH, YOU KNOW, I'M JUST
  • 00:03:23.070 --> 00:03:25.280
  • KIND OF IN BETWEEN. I THINK, I DON'T KNOW, WE CHATTED. HE GOES,
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:30.050
  • HEY, YOU WANT TO COME PLAY ON THIS TRACK? I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:35.010
  • YOU KNOW? I WAS, LIKE, YES! SO, I GO, I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S THE
  • 00:03:35.020 --> 00:03:38.090
  • NEXT DAY AND I GO AND HE PLAYS THE TRACK, AND I WAS, LIKE,
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:43.020
  • OKAY. SO, I GO OUT AND PLAY IT AND HE LIKED IT. AND SO I WAS
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:47.120
  • HAPPY. I WAS, LIKE, OH, GOOD. MAYBE I CAN DO THIS. YOU KNOW?
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:50.050
  • AND SO I SAID, MICHAEL, DO YOU HAVE ANY LYRICS FOR THIS SONG?
  • 00:03:50.060 --> 00:03:53.270
  • AND HE'S, LIKE, NO! YOU WANT A SHOT, BRO? I'M, LIKE, YEAH. SO I
  • 00:03:53.280 --> 00:03:59.040
  • WAS, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH! SO, I TAKE IT HOME AND, WELL, WHAT
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:03.170
  • THAT SONG ENDED UP BEING WAS THIS IS YOUR TIME, WHICH WAS
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:07.120
  • SONG OF THE YEAR THAT YEAR. AND SO THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:13.150
  • AMAZING MOMENTS OF MY LIFE, WAS TO, LIKE, TO WRITE A SONG WITH
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:18.110
  • ONE OF MY HEROES, AND WHO ENDED UP BECOMING ONE OF MY CLOSEST
  • 00:04:18.120 --> 00:04:22.090
  • FRIENDS. -WHEN I CAME BACK FROM COLUMBINE AND THAT WHOLE THING
  • 00:04:22.100 --> 00:04:26.200
  • WAS LIFE-CHANGING FOR ME. AND CONVINCED IF WE'D HAD A ROCKET
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:30.160
  • TOWN AND BUILT IN COLORADO, WE COULD HAVE PREVENTED THAT
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:33.140
  • TRAGEDY; ALL THE STUFF GOING THROUGH MY HEAD. AND I KNEW
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:36.160
  • THAT, I KNEW WHEN I WROTE THE SONG THAT'S WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT.
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:41.130
  • BECAUSE I CRIED FOR TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT. AND I KNEW THAT HE
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:44.130
  • COULD WRITE. I KNEW THAT HE WAS A POET. THERE'S NOT TOO MANY
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:48.030
  • POETS IN OUR INDUSTRY; THAT'S JUST MY OPINION. I'M NOT TRYING
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:50.200
  • TO BE CRITICAL. BUT THIS GUY'S A POET. AND WHEN HE PINNED THAT
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:54.260
  • LYRIC TO THIS IS YOUR TIME, I'M GOING, I THINK THIS GUY'S
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:59.230
  • GONNA BE MY FRIEND THE REST OF MY LIFE. NOT BECAUSE HE COULD
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:02.170
  • WRITE SONGS, BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT SONG THAT
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:07.200
  • IT DID SOMETHING TO US. -BEFORE WES PENNED THE LYRICS TO THIS
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:11.180
  • IS YOUR TIME, HE WROTE ANOTHER HEARTFELT, BEAUTIFUL SONG CALLED
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:15.190
  • WE THOUGHT YOU'D BE HERE ABOUT HIS STRUGGLE TO HAVE CHILDREN.
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:19.230
  • -I THOUGHT YOU'D BE HERE OFF OF ROOM FULL OF STORIES, A LOT OF
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:23.080
  • PEOPLE PRAYED FOR MY WIFE AND I BACK WHEN I WAS DOING RECORDS
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:26.220
  • AND BEING PLAYED ON CHRISTIAN RADIO ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. BUT
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:31.010
  • MY WIFE AND I'D TRY TO HAVE KIDS, WE WERE SOME OF THOSE
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:33.180
  • PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLED WITH FERTILITY. AND RIGHT AROUND THE
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:37.200
  • TIME, YOU KNOW, WE'RE ABOUT TO GIVE UP, GOD BLESSED US WITH
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:41.280
  • TWINS. BUT ONE OF THE LAST TIMES, YOU KNOW, WE WERE AT HER
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:47.150
  • MOTHER'S HOUSE IN NORTH CAROLINA, AND I WAS, I HAD MY
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:51.040
  • GUITAR AND I THINK I WAS WRITING FOR THE RECORD ROOM FULL OF
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:53.230
  • STORIES. IT WASN'T ROOM FULL OF STORIES AT THE TIME, I WAS JUST
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:56.180
  • WRITING FOR THE RECORD. AND I JUST THOUGHT, I'M JUST GONNA
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:59.240
  • SING WHAT COMES TO MY HEART. AND THAT SONG PRETTY MUCH CAME JUST
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:04.240
  • RIGHT THEN. WE THOUGHT YOU'D BE HERE BY NOW. YOUR MOTHER AND I,
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:07.140
  • WE'RE PRAYING THROUGH OUR TEARS THAT SOMEHOW' AND IT'S A PRAYER
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:11.150
  • AND IT WAS A CRY, AND TURNED OUT TO BE, I THINK, ONE OF THE,
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:16.010
  • ALTHOUGH, BORN OUT OF PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST PAINFUL TIMES IN
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:20.040
  • MY AND MY WIFE'S LIFE, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONGS I'VE
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:24.110
  • EVER WRITTEN. AND IT ENDED UP BEING, I THINK, ONE OF THE SONGS
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:26.140
  • THAT HAS MINISTERED TO MORE HURTING COUPLES THAN ANYTHING
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:31.050
  • I'VE EVER DONE. WHAT'S REALLY COOL ABOUT PERFORMING THIS SONG
  • 00:06:31.060 --> 00:06:35.100
  • IS THE CHILDREN THAT I WROTE THIS SONG FOR, BEFORE I EVEN MET
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:41.250
  • THEM, BEFORE THEY WERE EVEN CONCEIVED, ARE GONNA BE DOING
  • 00:06:41.260 --> 00:06:45.210
  • THAT SONG WITH ME TONIGHT, 21 YEARS LATER. SO, PRETTY COOL.

  • PAIN JUST KEPT GETTING WORSE. THEY GAVE HIM PAIN MEDICINE BUT
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:30.080
  • NOTHING WAS WORKING. AT ONE POINT THE NURSE SAID, OKAY, AND
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:35.080
  • ALL WES REMEMBERS IS A SPOON KIND OF LIKE APPEARED ON THE
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:39.050
  • FLOOR AND DISAPPEARED, AND THEN HE WAS OUT FROM THE MEDICINE.
  • 00:12:39.060 --> 00:12:44.020
  • WES KING WAS IN FOR THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE. LITERALLY. -NEXT
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:48.080
  • THING I KNOW I WAKE UP AND MY WIFE IS IN THE ROOM AND SHE'S
  • 00:12:48.090 --> 00:12:53.010
  • CLEANING UP LIKE SHE ALWAYS DOES, STRAIGHTENING UP A
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:12:55.260
  • HOSPITAL ROOM. SHE'S SUCH AN ORGANIZER, OPPOSITE OF ME. AND
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:13:02.180
  • SHE'S CRYING. I'M, LIKE, BABE, WHAT'S UP? AND SHE'S LIKE, WELL,
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:08.140
  • I'LL JUST WAIT TILL THE DOCTOR GETS HERE. I'M, LIKE, NO. WHAT'S
  • 00:13:08.150 --> 00:13:10.200
  • UP? I THOUGHT THEY'D DONE SURGERY ON ME. WHAT'S UP? SHE
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:14.180
  • SAYS YOU HAVE LIVER CANCER AND YOU'VE GOT SIX MONTHS TO LIVE.
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:19.260
  • AND I WAS, LIKE, WHOA, WHAT? YOU KNOW, COME AGAIN? AND THE FIRST
  • 00:13:19.270 --> 00:13:24.170
  • THING IS JUST DENIAL. IT'S LIKE HOW COULD THAT BE? WHAT? WE WENT
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:29.110
  • AND THEY DID EMERGENCY SURGERY, OPENED ME UP AND FOUND THREE
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:33.070
  • TUMORS: ONE IN MY COLON, ONE IN MY SMALL INTESTINE, AND ONE IN
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:37.090
  • MY STOMACH. AND THERE'S WAS ONE THE SIZE OF A GRAPEFRUIT. AND
  • 00:13:37.100 --> 00:13:40.070
  • THAT WAS WHAT WAS HURTING ME. IT WAS LIKE A BABY PUSHING DOWN ON
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:43.290
  • THE SCIATIC NERVE, SO IT WAS LIKE I WAS HAVING. AND SO THEY
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:51.020
  • LEFT THE ONE IN THE STOMACH AND WHAT IT WAS, WAS A THING CALLED
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:54.150
  • BURKITT'S LYMPHOMA. AND IT'S A VERY, VERY RARE CANCER THAT'S
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:58.270
  • MAINLY FOUND IN CHILDREN IN AFRICA. HOW I GOT IT NOBODY CAN
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:03.280
  • TELL ME. BUT IT DOUBLES IN SIZE EVERY 24 HOURS. AND THE AVERAGE
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:08.190
  • LIFESPAN IS ABOUT TWO WEEKS. SO, THE CHEMO WAS, IT WAS WORSE THAN
  • 00:14:08.200 --> 00:14:17.070
  • I COULD HAVE IMAGINED. IT WAS, I THINK THEY CALL IT THE CHOP
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:21.230
  • THERAPY OR SOMETHING AND, BASICALLY, THEY POISON YOU
  • 00:14:21.240 --> 00:14:27.180
  • WITHIN INCHES OF YOUR LIFE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AS THEY TRY TO
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:33.190
  • BLAST THIS OUT AND DISCOURAGE IT FROM EVER COMING BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:37.140
  • BECAUSE IF IT COMES BACK IT COMES BACK WORSE AND ALL THAT.
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:40.040
  • -I VIVIDLY REMEMBER SITTING IN THE BATHROOM WHILE YOU'RE IN THE
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:43.030
  • BATHROOM, JUST GOING, I'M JUST GONNA BE HERE, BRO. I'LL JUST, I
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:49.070
  • DON'T KNOW WHY I VIVIDLY REMEMBER THAT MOMENT, AND I
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:52.140
  • THINK THAT'S THE MOMENT THAT I REALIZED, YOU KNOW, THAT HE WAS
  • 00:14:52.150 --> 00:14:56.250
  • REALLY SICK. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I HEARD ABOUT THE DIAGNOSIS, BUT
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:15:02.150
  • WHEN I LOOKED AT HIM AND SAW HOW THIS IS, THIS IS LIFE AND DEATH
  • 00:15:02.160 --> 00:15:09.160
  • KIND OF THING. -AFTER THE FIRST ROUND I WAS, I LITERALLY WENT
  • 00:15:09.170 --> 00:15:16.210
  • INTO SEPTIC SHOCK. MY BLOOD COUNTS ALL WERE DOWN TO ZERO AND
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:20.230
  • I FELT MYSELF DYING. I WAS DYING AND I COULD FEEL IT. I MEAN, I
  • 00:15:20.240 --> 00:15:26.220
  • COULD, LITERALLY, FEEL MY SPIRIT LEAVING MY BODY. AND MY NEPHEW
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:31.280
  • WAS THERE. MY WIFE WAS THERE. AND, YOU KNOW, THEY KEPT SAYING
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:34.230
  • HOLD ON, JUST HANG ON, HANG ON. -YOU KNOW, THEN THAT'S WHEN YOU
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:38.030
  • RALLY THE TROOPS TO PRAY FOR MY FRIEND BECAUSE THIS GUY'S DYING,
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:44.250
  • BASICALLY. AND SO, I JUST, I JUST REALLY BELIEVE WITH EVERY
  • 00:15:44.260 --> 00:15:51.090
  • FIBER OF MY BEING THAT WITH REALLY GREAT FAITH THAT HE WAS
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:55.240
  • GONNA SOMEHOW PULL OUT OF IT, YOU KNOW. -AND I HELD MY WIFE'S
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:59.280
  • HAND I PICTURED MY LITTLE BOYS AND THERE WAS ABOUT FIVE TIMES
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:05.090
  • LIKE THAT, WHERE I WAS, LITERALLY, IT WAS LIKE I WAS
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:10.120
  • JUST CLINGING TO LIFE BY MY FINGERTIPS. AND IT WAS MY FAITH
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:16.070
  • AND THE PRAYERS OF MY FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS. I'LL NEVER FORGET
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:21.130
  • COMING HOME, MAYBE AFTER THE SECOND CHEMO, AND I WAS IN BAD
  • 00:16:21.140 --> 00:16:24.120
  • SHAPE. AND I'M SITTING IN THIS LITTLE CHAIR BECAUSE I GOT ONE
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:28.250
  • OF THOSE RELAX THE CHAIRS BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT THE ONLY
  • 00:16:28.260 --> 00:16:30.270
  • THING I COULD SIT IN WHERE I WASN'T IN SOME KIND OF PAIN. I'M
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:34.250
  • BALD. I LOOK LIKE UNCLE FESTER. [CHUCKLES] -I DO REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:40.050
  • -YEAH. AND MY WIFE COMES AND SAYS, HONEY, WOULD YOU LIKE TO
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:44.070
  • HAVE A VISITOR? I SAID NOT REALLY. SHE GOES IT'S MICHAEL W.
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:48.100
  • I SAID, YES, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A VISITOR. AND THIS GUY
  • 00:16:48.110 --> 00:16:52.160
  • SHOWS UP AND WITH THAT SMILE AND THAT BEAMING HEART THAT JUST
  • 00:16:52.170 --> 00:17:00.060
  • BURSTS THROUGH HIS EYES CAME IN AND GAVE ME LIFE AND GAVE ME
  • 00:17:00.070 --> 00:17:04.120
  • HOPE. AND HE KEPT SAYING WE'RE NOT DONE YET, BUD, WE GOT MORE
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:08.170
  • SONGS TO WRITE. YOU'VE GOT MORE TO DO. THOSE KIDS NEED YOU. AND
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:12.280
  • HE'D MAKE ME LAUGH. AND HE SHOWED UP AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:16.160
  • AND WOULD GIVE ME SOME OF THE BEST MEDICINE I COULD EVER HAVE.
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:24.110
  • AND WHAT'S SO AMAZING TO ME IS I THINK ABOUT GOD'S PROVIDENCE
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:30.290
  • CAUSE, YOU KNOW, AT SOME OF THE HARDEST TIMES IN YOUR LIFE IT'S
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:35.290
  • AMAZING WHAT A SONG CAN DO. SO, MICHAEL IS JUST SOMEBODY THAT I
  • 00:17:36.000 --> 00:17:41.290
  • FEEL LIKE UNDERSTANDS ME AND WE UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. AND IT'S
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:45.250
  • JUST GOOD TO KNOW THAT I'VE GOT A FRIEND THAT WE SHARE, KIND OF
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:50.020
  • SIMILAR, HE'S ALMOST AS SUCCESSFUL AS I AM. [CHUCKLES]
  • 00:17:50.030 --> 00:17:55.230
  • SIMILAR THINGS AND GOD IS GOOD AND HE'S GOOD ALL THE TIME EVEN
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:18:00.240
  • WHEN THINGS ARE BAD. AND THAT ONE OF THE AMAZING THINGS GOD
  • 00:18:00.250 --> 00:18:03.200
  • SHOWED ME WAS THAT YOU'RE SUFFERING, BUT WHAT AN HONOR TO
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:10.020
  • BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY JUST A LITTLE BIT WITH WHAT THE LORD
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:13.100
  • WENT THROUGH FOR US. AND I'M FAITHFUL BECAUSE I'M GONNA GET
  • 00:18:13.110 --> 00:18:17.060
  • YOU THROUGH IT, AND HERE'S YOUR BUDDY, AND HERE'S , LOOK AT
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:20.240
  • THOSE KIDS, AND LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL WIFE THAT SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:18:20.250 --> 00:18:23.030
  • NEVER MARRIED YOU. AND ALL THOSE THINGS. SO. -THERE'S JUST, WE
