Close calls, by ferengie

This song and video was created for the 21SongsIn2023 challenge for the Nostalgia Prompt. I had an an idea for this song but I was not sure it would fit the meaning of the word. Then I looked it up, and it does: "Nostalgia is an intriguing phenomenon. On the one hand, nostalgia can be positive, imbued with a rosy glow of familiarity and belongingness. On the other hand, it can be negative, accompanied by longing, loss, and frustrated desire. Nostalgia often melds both positive and negative experiences."
