  • Lyrics
  • This is a song about folly. Plant told The Guardian, laughing: "I'm quite often singing about my error. I just don't quite ever get it right. But if I did, I'd probably be having a pipe and slippers and watching a box set of The Office, you know?"

    The former Led Zep frontman added that he is still driven by a longing to do other things. "But at the same time I'm carrying fire, because it hurts. I'm scarring other people and scarring myself. But no matter how much scarring I do, or how much I run from circumstance, Wolverhampton Wanderers are still at home to Millwall on Saturday, you know? And when I finish talking to you, I shall be heading to play five-a-side back home with my friends, until the defibrillator turns up. You've got to carry on."
  • Plant said the song was influenced by his interest in pathos in classical music, "and beautiful pieces like Górecki's Symphony No 3, when composers linger on one small movement of sound, to create these great atmospheres."
