Album: Further Complications (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Cocker told the New Musical Express the background to this song: "For about ten minutes I thought I'd lost my son at St. Pancras Station. Of all the places to lose a kid an international train station is probably the worst you could pick. Immediately you imagine that they're being put on a train to some weird place on the continent. It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life."
