Love this songBeck - Boca Raton, Fl
Really LOVE the song; just sometimes can't get over the "slapback" echo on the drums IMHO, maybe mixed a little too heavy ??Joe - Grants Pass, Or
Beautiful, powerful and haunting. Always seems like a dirge to me, for the demise of love and a musical finger pointed at the one who killed it.Esskayess - Dallas, Tx
Based on the date of its release, the song may refer to Sarah Jane Smith, played by Lis Sladen, who had recently resigned her role on TV's Doctor Who. References to time, fire and ice, etc. seem to be clues.G. - Newport News, Va
I love this song AND the video. It's so sweet. And I couldn't quite tell if that was Rebecca de mornay in the video until someone previously mentioned her in one of the comments.Jessica - Tulsa, Ok
Peter Wolf also played keyboards on Sheik Yerbouti and Joe's Garage.Miles - Vancouver, Canada
Ina Wolf (Former Wife) of Peter Wolf teamed up in 1987 and formed the Group "Vienna" made the album called "Guess What?" and delivered the most heart felt album I ever heard. Track 10 on the CD is called "July" you have got to hear her beautiful voice...It gives you the goosebumps all over..Jayson - Wilkes-barre, United States
Very haunting, beautiful video, about love lost....Art - Valencia, Ca
