  • Lyrics
  • The lead single from The Blue Nile's third album Peace At Last, it opens with the line "Now that I've found peace at last. Tell me Jesus, will it last?," one of several references to God or Jesus on the disc. Frontman Paul Buchanan explained to Mojo magazine July 1996: "I see those as an adult readdressing the God or the Jesus that he was familiar with as a child - which, for me, was a combination of a little plastic statue I had in my room and my understanding of my relationship with that God, who was like an elder brother - back when you still believe in the unconditional nature of that love."
