    Beautiful song. Unfortunately it makes me want to cry - a) because it's beautiful and b) because it was playing when my then-girlfriend left to go to University, over ten years ago now. She drove away in tears, I cried, and played this song over and over again. The line "and only that will bring you back to me" fucking slayed me every time and I still struggle with it now.

    I just yawned, sat back and hit 'return'. Don't think anything happened. Great, great song.

    clramalhão esta música e o album Fin de Siècle são magistrais! Gosto muito do "Short album about Love", do "Casanova" e de todos. Porém o "Fin de Siècle" é poderoso! Esta e o "Sweeden" são duas obras primas do Neil!

    tens toda a razão, peter! Faz-me lembrar o Hard Club, onde a ouvi ao vivo numa noite de Inverno...

    One of my fav songs of DC. Reminds me when i was 27/28 years and had time to go to concerts... Now it´s more difficult. I love this song.
