  • This song is the Broken Family Band's biggest hit to date. It's a sweet, beautiful song, but according to Steve, "It's quite an insubstantial song because it didn't take much to write. It doesn't have much weight for me as some others do, and people are crazy for it. But that's the way it works, isn't it?" he laughs. "Perhaps it would matter if the stakes were higher, if we were selling millions of records, maybe there's a graph shows the point where we're at, or the point where you're megastars, it doesn't matter. But somewhere in between it totally does matter what sorts of songs your fans love.
    I really like it, and I love singing it," continues the singer, "but anyone could have written it."
    And a final word of advice: "I think everybody writes songs… you have to be careful about which ones you record (laughing) that everybody might like." (Read the full interview with Steve Adams)
