Against the Wind
There are at least two gems of wisdom in Bob Seeger's ballad "Against the Wind." The poignant loss of innocence is captured in the lines: "Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then." Later he muses about facing up to responsibility and grappling with the, "deadlines and commitments; what to leave out and what to leave in." It is all about the striving for balance in life that lasts a lifetime. As the song says: "We are older now, but still running against the wind."
