john, walesi'd heard this song many times over the years but only after my recent relationship break up I understand it. This song now always seems to give me a bit of strength if I ever bump into the x.
Jane Harris/Gillingham.DorsetThe song is very poignant to me right now,having just broken up with someone.I think my tears really HAVE left tracks on my face,which I know only time will heal.
I have ALWAYS loved this song,as it epitomises the pain you feel when love goes wrong.Thank-you Smokey.
kristjanto me the ultimate version of this song is smokey performing it on a live album - i guess it's 'live in germany 1977' or sth. it's more down-tuned and much more menacing in an emotional way.
rob wallser plymouthalwats loved the song but once again the real meaning evaded me for years untill i heard the man himself explain that he imagined being so sad for so long that the tears he had cried had left a groove or track on his face ,epic sadness
