In Their Words: “[This] song’s saying, ‘If I have five more minutes to love you, it’s going to be the best damn five minutes of my life.’ … After years of falling in and out of financial and mental depression, I had finally had enough. I was ready to take my own life. But in my darkest moment, where I was ready right then and there to end it all, my wife Tanya asked one last thing of me: ‘Just give me five more minutes. Stay with me. Just five more minutes to love you.’ And something in her eyes, something in her hands convinced me to give her that five more minutes.” — Michael Trotter, The War and Treaty
