  • This is the only song from the album with lead vocals from Tears for Fears co-lead vocalist Curt Smith.
  • Roland Orzabal, the other half of the duo, wrote this with Nicky Holland, who provided backing vocals and keyboards for the track. Orzabal said of the tune: "The song expresses a desire to grow up and get things together - to let go of the past. I think it's just an awareness of getting older, that's what it stems from. And also an awareness that certain aspects of you aren't getting older."
