Olle Nick Hornby mentioned this song in a book. After listening a couple of times I think i've grasped. The first verse is beutiful; "Maybe it's the colour of the sun cut flat covering the crossroad I'm standing at, or maybe it's the weather or somthing like that but Mama you've been on my mind". The music is fine too. Sep 11, 2009
