I have never made it through this song without crying. Heartbreaking doesn't even begin to describe the emotions evoked by this work of art.

Possibly the worst DS ever. Stupid lyrics that one cannot imagine being written my Mark Knopfler and a boring, lazy tune.

Down to the Waterline Report Abuse
Well first song first album A side. It just captures the essence of early Dire Straits, influenced by Pick Whiters. This and Tunnel of Love are my favourites.
