Synopsis: After hearing a bittersweet love song on the radio, a woman is stricken by the urge to see the man she almost married fifteen years earlier. When he returns to the small town they grew up in, she's surprised by some of the changes in him but unsurprised by others.
After all, in his line of work, anything can happen...
Notes: No names are ever explicitly mentioned, nor symbols/insignias visible, but anyone with even a passing familiarity with comic books will recognize the lovelorn woman as Lana Lang, and the man she pines after as Clark Kent.
Jim Spivey thanks Dan Fogelberg and W.B. Yeats as inspiration for this story. The title comes from the poem "When You Are Old" by Yeats, and the love song the woman hears on the radio is likely "Same Auld Lang Syne" by Fogelberg.
