In Their Words: "When I recorded this I was listening a lot to 'Overs' from Bookends. I wanted to channel something along those lines, lyrically, but in a very different musical context. The track is very straightforward but there are a great many vocal overdubs on it. I just wanted that Phil Spector vocal wash. There must be 150 backing vocal tracks on there that I bounced and bounced into oblivion. I think this is the third or fourth best song I've written in my career." -- Singer Dave Hartley
