Status Quo bass player Alan Lancaster wrote this song about remembering a deceased loved one 12 months after the death: "Lonely Sunday morning, rest in peace, my love. You've been sleeping so long, a year has gone."
The descending bassline in A-minor represents the feeling of bereavement in this song.
The song was influenced by early Beatles work. It features harmony singing in the B section of the song, which was typical of early Beatles.
