  • Jeff Lynne explained the story behind this song to The Sun: "That's about my two daughters, trying to gee them up when they're down," he said." I had a divorce and it was a depressing time for them. I'm saying, 'One day the sun will shine on you if you just do what you've got to do. Just face up to it and try to get over it.'"
