"It started out as a simple folk song about relationships", Turner
said. "In particular drawing on my experiences with CBT therapy in the last couple of years - the idea of trying to make small, practical adjustments to your life, which can add up to something significant. Over time, the music grew in a really interesting, early 80s pop direction, and the metaphor of the lyric grew into something more expansive.”
