“I had in mind this kid who used to stand outside the sound checks on our first tour and I never spoke to him. I remember the last time I saw him I left him standing in the snow, I never had anything to say to him and I kinda wrote this for him.”Chrissie Hynde (1042)


“It’s about a prostitute whose son finds out what she does for a living and this is her having a conversation with him. Not all songs are autobiographical.”Chrissie Hynde (1042)
