Although they were both lyricists for the most part, Campbell and Connelly wrote this one together. There is an interesting connection here with both Mark Knopfler and Al Stewart: Campbell was born in Newcastle, where Knopfler grew up; one of his songs, "Down To The Waterline
", was inspired by an early romance there. Connelly was born at Buckhurst Hill, East London, where Knopfler lived while working as a lecturer at Loughton College, and indeed his song "Eastbound Train
" was inspired by the Underground journey from New Cross to Buckhurst Hill. Connelly died at Bournemouth, which according to Al Stewart in his epic song "Love Chronicles
" is where he lost his virginity, and Campbell died in London, to which, like many British songwriters, both the Glasgow born Stewart and
the Glasgow born Knopfler moved in search of fame and fortune, although Stewart would later relocate to California.
