Just read a mini-review of the movie "On the Waterfront" which made me think of this song. You'll see why as soon as it reaches the chorus. I've never seen the movie, but the review has made me want to. I'll put it on my list. I really like the song by the way. The missus and I saw Lloyd Cole play solo several years back at the Rams Head Tavern. Pretty good show.
