When I heard that golden voice in my head she said come away from windows of glass; if you don’t wanna follow then leave them there and you’ll find that the feeling will pass, she said you don’t know me yet, but you will find I’ve been with you all the days of your life, when I took on the job I didn’t realise you were such a difficult type and she said I’m so tired of fighting your wildest of ways and she said I’m so sorry taking your longest of days Then she took me by the hand and showed me ‘do you see those lights up ahead, can you feel all the voices pulling you; I can’t save you from what you dread ‘ and she said I’m so tired of fighting you, it’s why you’re here now and she said how I’m fading fast, you must say goodbye now I feel this is the place I leave you you’ll find that your road is down there if you’re feeling too warm take your clothes off I assure you that there’s no-one will care and she said I’m so tired of fighting your wildest of ways and she said I’m so sorry taking your longest of days you don’t know me yet but I’ve been with you all the days of your life when I took on the job didn’t realise you were such a difficult type
She Said is a song about my guardian angel.
Charlie May did some great stuff with guitars at the beginning of this song, and there is an amazing solo by a french guitarist called Pierre Chaze at the end; it sounds like he is playing backwards but he’s not. He achieved a sound that I had never heard before and I love it.
The drums are played by a young guy called Dave Power and were recorded in my studio by Ben Findlay. We all had a great time when Dave came over; he is a human dynamo.
