Send Ringtones to Cell

The lights of the ashes smoulder through hills and vales
Nostalgia burns in the hearts of the strongest
Picasso is painting the ships in the harbour the wind and sails
These are years with a genius for living

    Having listened to this song for decades I just realised, that what he sings at the end is "fire at will", giving the song a completely different meaning. Oh and to agree with @enigmatikc Danny Thompson's bass gives his tunes a great vibe, both here and on Secrets of the Beehive
