Ricki - I enjoy listening to the song - I both like Cat Stevens and and Michael's vocal and production of this song - it's beautiful and well done. I like your choices for the A sections, the cold bed, the stinging sun and the grip of age, are all well written. The between this and that choices are well thought out and thought provoking. The B section is great . So my nit ( and remember, it's just my opinion) is that the hook line is too cool. Your mind says one thing, but your feelings say another - so why not state the obvious emotion. That's all - ....Pete
