  • Lyrics
  • This folk waltz is the title track of Sting's eleventh studio album, his first full-length LP of original material since 2003's Sacred Love. The record grew out of a musical of the same name that Sting had been working on, which is set in a shipyard in Wallsend, England, the town where the real-life Gordon Sumner grew up. The show's storyline tackles the declining local shipbuilding industry, the passage of time and the importance of family and community.
