The second song I ever really loved.

I have loved & lived with this song all my life and it is one of my favourite top 10 tracks of all time.

Track Meaning:

One day when the male character in the song is sober and has his head "straight", he will impart something of significance to his current love about his earliest & deepest love, a woman named "pheadra" whose memory he is still haunted by.

Hence the repetition of the Pheadra/ Nancy portion of the song . . . her section symbolising the "haunting" and struggle inside his head as he tries to gain "closure" from this past relationship with a mysterious former love Pheadra . . . his part of the song being directed to his new lover in the present.

His present lack of sobriety (drunkeness) describing his vain attempts to drown out the all consuming memory of this mysterious former love, a memory that he is aware is annoying his present lover and describes his fear that she may leave him as a result of his "haunting" by his old (first)love.


At the point in history this song was written the labels of "straight" (meaning hetrosexual) and "gay" (meaning homosexual) did not yet exist. In fact by the late sixties the term "gay" was just another word for "happy".
