Sinead O'Connor, who also appears on the Us
track "Come Talk To Me
," sings on this with Gabriel. For his Secret World tour, which began in 1993, Paula Cole, who had yet to release her first album, took on the female vocals.
Songs of this nature require tremendous sensitivity so as not to sound smarmy, but Gabriel could make that connection. "He puts out content according to a lunar cycle," Cole told Songfacts
. "He's always embracing the feminine."
