We have all gone through this at least one time in our lives. But the fact that it is also tough to be the one who leaves is something you could only know if you have experienced it. So, the question arises — how to break up with someone?
And I played the line on the guitar and Paul laid that with me on the bass. We laid that track down like that. We played the lead part later on top of it. The lyrics I brought in were something to do with golden rings, which are always fatal to songwriting. I came in and I said, 'These aren't good lyrics but it's a good tune.
We can do it, we can do it. But Paul helped me on the lyric. It was about an affair I was having. I was very careful and paranoid because I didn't want my wife, Cyn, to know that there really was something going on outside of the household.
I'd always had some kind of affairs going on, so I was trying to be sophisticated in writing about an affair But I can't remember any specific woman it had to do with.
