“The week the song was written I was letting the moment decide what I would write. So, it had just finished raining. The title and the melody came first, “It’s not raining anymore.” (Incidentally, it is about to rain again now as I type this) I sat with that phrase for a while and wondered where it could go? Was it a metaphor or was I going to write a weather song? The shipwrecked image came next with the idea of “the worst is over” and it gradually turned into what sounds to me like a quintessential relationship song. Can we survive the chaos we’ve just been through?”
