This song gives me the shivers.
Someone wrote an interesting little comment on this youtube video, and I wonder if it is really true:
robinmuzette (8 months ago): hey this was writen about my dad :) he bumped into kim lying drunk in the road when he was in america, working in recording companies. they got to talking and during that night he told her a long story about sailing - 'i learn to sail'. then 'i am the make up on your eyes', comes from his dark eye lashes and everyone always tell hims he looks like hes wearing make up. then at the start, 0.44, thats my dads messing around on one the machines, and they put it in. kim wrote this the next day :)
