a refuge
10 February 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I suppose, it is more than a beautiful song. It is just a kick to be yourself. All is great, from song, to video, to lyrics and, hearing it after decades, you have a good refuge, a lovely place, a fair definition of what is real significant. So, a magnificent song. And inspired video. And the unique Colin Vearncombe.
