James is correct; one of the albums or maybe the song book Rush Complete mentions that this is one of only two Rush songs without any drum or bass. (The other is Broon's Bane on Exit...Stage Left). That was just after Signals.
Dale - Austin, Tx
I have never been keen on Rush but this song is not too bad.
Matthew - York, United Kingdom
The song fact actually has a lot to do with the song, Ethan.
Carina - London, United Kingdom
Dear John (from Asheville, NY) These people on the boards are the people that only understand the Rock and the Music, but not the inspiration, like Tolkien and old Fables and Myths...
Jasper - Nieuwegein, Netherlands
Rush is the best thing period.
Pryce - Litchfield, Nh
First song I ever learned on guitar.
Claude - Kingston, Ma
That song fact on here has nothing to do with this song. >.<
Ethan - Helsinki, -
Man does this song get crap on many of the Rush boards. I've never heard anything offensive in it. It's a lilting melody with an emotional vocal. I've heard a lot worse from Rush.
John - Asheville, Nc
I believe this is the song that Geddy is credited for playing classical guitar on the back of the album
Tom - Highland, Ny
