    God what a blast from the past. I've not heard this since I was detained at Abu Gharib. Definitely one of my favourite tracks of those several years.

    Beautiful song, no one should be afraid to let the person know just how they feel. You put the past in the past an take one foot towards that person an take her in your arms an tell her. Thanks for sharing 😊

    I was living and working in the States when I first heard this back in 2000, it still seems fresh today :)

      I was living and studying in Istanbul when I heard this back in 2000. Although I was fluent in English, i never managed to comprehend the chorus line (I guess even some native speakers failed to do so) but I loved it so much. I was frustrated by not knowing the artist and the song title for a long time. So thank you internet.

      Sheer 2waist David Gray & Chris De Burgh would both think you’re a fuckin idiot & be embarrassed to be asked if they’re better song writers than Lennon/McCartney. They won’t be remembered by future generations. You have a brain the size of a ping pong ball if you believe they will.

      Goncalo Amaral guaranteed you should not be Here listening to this you should be on your beloved Beatles TVclip channel so go there now you know you want to

    • Goncalo Amaral

      Sheer 2waist I guarantee you, if asked, they wouldn’t claim to be better than Lennon/McCartney. No one is that stupid

    • Sheer 2waist

      Goncalo Amaral oh really have you heard of Al Stewart? Chris De Burgh who write very wordy songs about history that Lennon and McCartney could never ever match so put that in your pipe and smoke it

    • Goncalo Amaral
      Goncalo Amaral Month ago

      Sheer 2waist Lennon/McCartney are greatest popular music song writers ever. You won’t find any contemporary song writers pretending they are better
