Album: Apocalypse (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Speaking to Q magazine February 2014, Callahan said that as the years have gone by he's become, "more interested in singing better and playing guitar better and the relationship between those two things, how they play off each other."

    He added that this track that recounts the regret of a marriage ruined, is a fine example of his new outlook: "It's a song where the vocal and guitar are inter-related and dependent on each other," he said. "And that's a very spare song, so it's very obvious. It reminds me of what I'm trying to do."
