    General Commentthis song is so gorgeous, even as it tackles a tough subject matter

    so many great lines about self destructive engagements,
    reconciled in typical Gillian fashion, with a knowing quiet smile,

    ..your affront to my virtue was a touch too much, but you left a little twinkle in my eye..


    been there, hopefully learned from that


    I do hear one line differently..

    why can't I go and live the Life of Riley
