Well, this is one of those 2-in-one songs. I didn't care for the first part which ended around the 2:50 mark but the up tempo 2nd portion is very nice indeed. What a powerfully foreboding voice and some great instrumentation to boot! Added!
Yeah, I think that Chris Rea has a terrific voice. This song triggers two associations for me (both of which are intended as compliments):
a) Chris Rea's vocal performance and the song's lyric content both remind me of Leonard Cohen.
b) The up tempo guitar that starts the second half of the song is reminiscent of Mark Knopfler's work with Dire Straits.
