Notes:


This was written for my wife Yola and it tells the story of how we met In Abu Dhabi, singing in the same hotel. We were in a penthouse disco and she was in a busy little bar downstairs. She used to walk through our club in a tiny mini dress and steal all our customers! God she was gorgeous! We got engaged came to England and struggled a lot. I played the song to her and she said it was too busy! Ho hum. I added harmonies to try and make the lead vocal sound decent. But it didn’t quite, so I added some more and it was a bit better so I left it. I like what Warren did with lead guitar. I had to stick it under a verse though because it seemed too long if I gave it a verse on its own. It helps distract from my out of tune singing so I liked that too. Might do this again differently one day, though. Any
singers out there?
