In the second verse, Stewart sings about his first love, a girl "I dreamed I would wed" but told him "We're far too young for that."
This alludes to an art student Stewart met when he was 17 named Susannah Boffey. They had a daughter together, who they gave up for adoption because the couple was in no condition to raise a child. Stewart and Boffey split up, but she remained entrenched in his memory. Their daughter, Sarah, later established a relationship with Stewart.
In his 2013 song "Brighton Beach
," Stewart also sings about this relationship.
