Going Back

(Keith Helliwell/Rob Mackenzie)

This song, with lyrics by Keith Helliwell and music by Rob Mackenzie, was influenced by the story of two children from Tyneside in northeast England who were taken into care.  The children were then split up by the local Social Services department.

The children grew up but never stopped looking for each other and remarkably they found each other after 45 years of searching.  The two of them proved that love really can conquer all and got married, never to be parted again.

The song was recorded by the Northeastern Sunrise and appears on their Expectation EP.

Many thanks to Keith Helliwell for providing information on this song.
