I wrote this song when I was 19 and living in Colchester. This version was recorded 6 years ago at Parr St studios in Liverpool and happens to be performed on the same piano as was used by Coldplay on ‘Clocks’…

Soon after writing it, I had the opportunity to play this song on the same piano in the same studio to Guy Garvey. We met upstairs in the studio bar and he was kind enough to show me around and played me some songs in progress while Elbow were recording their sophomore album ‘Cast of Thousands’. Some of the songs from that album still hit home in a powerful way – probably off the back of those experiences…

I was pretty forthright in those days and remember giving him a fair bit of opinion and advice :)

He was gracious and supportive and said he liked my song.
