(Keith Helliwell/Rob Mackenzie)
written and performed by Northeastern Sunrise had the lyrics written by Keith Helliwell and the music added by Rob Mackenzie.
Keith Helliwell the words are “from a
man’s point of view – it’s not often that men don’t
listen!” The man in the
lyrics does listen in this instance with a sympathetic and supporting
feeling towards the woman he’s listening to.
Keith Helliwell said that the song was one of the most
difficult they have recorded as the timing of it is paramount. If it’s performed too fast
then it loses the gentleness it aims to portray.
It appears on
Sunrise Expectation EP and now takes its
place as a regular inclusion in their live sets. It has proven so popular that they
were asked to perform it a second time during a gig after someone had liked
it so much.
Many thanks to Keith Helliwell
