No, this one is the original, but Knopflerfan duplicated all the LP bonus threads to include the lyrics, instead of using the original ones, so most of the bonus tracks have duplicated threads, the original ones that I created, and the ones created after by Knopflerfan.

I suggest to the mods to merge them.
You might get lucky, now and then

Very nice guitar. Do I hear echoes of So Far Away?:)
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

Really loving this song, especially the So Far Away chord slides. A relative of Your Perfect Song.

Yes! :)

Aaaand... after three listens this one is now stuck in my head!

It's interesting how songs that appear unremarkable at first listen can go on to become favourites.

Now, if we weren't already huge MK fans and we weren't struck by a song at first listen we wouldn't keep going back for more.

I wonder if I listened to the new Taylor Swift album multiple times I would start getting favourites from that one  ???

My interpretation:

He's talking about what all the "ordinary" people are doing while he's flying about in his private jet on tour, but he still wishes he was with Kitty.

Thank you.

Thematically, the So Far Away echo indeed makes sense as it would be a similar setting (being away on tour/work, missing her)   but loaded with much more love and less making out on the telephone  ;D

Maybe this song was written by Mark a long time ago when he was still on tour ;)
