  • Lyrics
  • Written by Wishbone Ash bass player and vocalist Martin Turner, this song was inspired partly by a meeting with David Bowie and partly by his own experience. He wrote the song at night. Says Turner, "most of the creative work I've done has been done late at night or early in the morning." >>
