Recorded early in Stephen Duffys long and mostly un recognised consistantly brilliant career ,this from the first Lilac time L.p ,itself,an eclectic jewel amidst late 80,s polished mediocrity .A mournful folky number played out on a harmonium,accordion and light percussion ,sadness never sounded so uplifting and hopeful.Everytime i hear Duffy now i cam imagine Robbie williams covering .
A tale of lost innocence and regret and a cautionary tale of drug abuse but with just voice and guitar this never lapses into self indulgence or sentimentality .Also covered in almost identical fashion a few years later by Robbie Williams
from I lLove My Friends available on CD - I Love My Friends
