While there were no surprises with what the lyrics meant, what I found quite interesting was reading about how the album was put together, and all the work that goes into it. It was all there on the demo. But Roy made the song sound much bigger. It opens with me picking on notes in the middle position of my Fender Jazzmaster guitar.
