Songfacts®:

  • This was inspired by the band's frontman, Johnny Borrell's break up with his girlfriend. Borrell said of the writing of this in the London Times July 14, 2006: "I could have sat down with a guitar, played a minor key and gone 'She's gooooone, it's so haaaard,' but I realized that to make a serious point you don't have to be serious. That song was a breakthrough for me. I love the whole album's defiant brightness." >>
