Please see below frontman Paul Simpson's notes on the song. An absolute heart melter by Scouse heroes The Wild Swans, taken from the compilation album, 'INCANDESCENT' (1982). LISTEN LOUD.

Paul Simpson - vocals. Jeremy Kelly - guitar. Ged Quinn - keyboards. Baz Hughes - bass. Joe McKechnie - drums.

"When Jeremy and Ged first started circling this intro pattern at rehearsels one Saturday morning I got shivers down my neck and knew it had the potential to blossom into a stone-cold classic. Once I had the first line "Black clouds approaching, once my mettle held fast". It all came pouring out at once like I was channeling it from the hereafter. The title (which never appears in the lyric) came a few days later. I always heard it as a command: you know, suffer in silence. In my opinion the band's finest moment." - Paul Simpson.
