Release DateEdit

  • 24 March, 1986 ('Please' album track)


Track 10 from 'Please'.


The story behind this is Neil and two other men looking out of a window at Smash Hits and seeing a cute mod boy walking down the street. He proclaimed it "the most gay song we've ever written, practically, and no one noticed at the time...The song is saying that the boy is so out of your reach you will never meet him...but then, you wait 'til later. Maybe it's destiny, or fate, because tonight always comes. So it may happen. Really it's about sex and class."

Trivia Edit

  • Lost verse: 'you stare like a fellow new to town who can't believe his eyes / through plate glass you can always see so much you want but can never touch'
