From the recording Hey La Hey
Originally i was going to have a woman sing the verse and i was going to sing the chorus. Kate York was a friend of Lex's . She came in and in about 40 minutes she had a finished vocal. It was so good we just had her sing the whole thing. Its a song that was a farewell song to drugs in fact, hidden in the coat of a love song. That is why i wanted another voice to be the voice of that which we love that is harmful to you. Any kind of addiction really.
