It is the journalist indeed saying this opinion but I think an agreement from Von was necessary before the release. But who knows maybe 25 years ago the journalist could write something very different from what had been said in reality.

Journalists have always written something very different from what's been said in reality.

Isn't "The bar that's always closing" etc line mean that him and the ex always end up shouting at each other?


Always been my favourite line of the song. It's magical.

It's a great song, a great lyric. There's so much in there that can be read five different ways. For example, "You say we're almost all alone together": are we almost all alone -- or are we almost all alone? Is it a world where people shout, so he doesn't want to talk it over - or are people shouting "I don't want to talk it over"?

That's how I'm hearing it, too, however I dimly recall seeing a post on here claiming that the song was about a guitarist who'd always hook up with other women behind his girlfriend's back when he was on tour.


Wasn't that When you don't see me?

There's also "We're almost all alone, together" - i.e. when we're together, we're still all alone, there's no "relationship", we're just two people who happen to do the same things. This ties back to the idea of the r'ship being moribund.

"I don't really seem to get on with people. I don't know whether you've noticed."

Nah, never crossed our minds, Andy. Laughing

Cheers, Joy.
