I wrote the song in 1994 when I fell in love with a French guy called Stéphane. Sadly, he had to leave before we really had the chance to get together. I had always intended a 2nd voice in the chorus and asked Nathan Peter Illes whether he wanted to sing them. I had always loved his songs and was really happy when he agreed to do them. While working on the song with Nathan I had the idea this could be a duet.
While working on the arrangement, I went for the usual chamber folk elements like a cello but also wanted to add a different element. I'd always loved the sound of the harmonica since it has this kind of nostalgic feel to it. I asked my indie colleague Orange G whether he might want to play it and luckily, he also agreed to do it.
