I worked on this song on holiday in Raro. It felt then that I was living a highlight even though it’s hard to tell at the time, isn’t it? Seems like I have to look back to see the highlights, so the song is about escaping back to highlights.
Echo Beach by Martha and The Muffins was favourite song of mine in the 80s with a similar theme of escape – ‘my job is very boring I’m an office clerk’. I loved the prosaic lyric. It’s something I like to do – represent life as I see it, as I go through it.
