This song has special meaning to many of those who attended Tehran American School at the time of the 1979 revolution. We were rock'n'roll kids and Tehran was our home. In late 1978 the American community began official evacuations from Iran as the Shah's government fell apart. Tehran American School, which had been the largest overseas American school of its time, was closed forever in December 1978. The students, families and teachers were scattered to the winds. This song reminds me of all that was lost and left behind.
