About Tim Londergan
Cliff was aged 21 when he wrote and recorded the song in Cliff stated he wrote the song due to the trouble he was having making it as a successful musical artist after originally finding success in his home of Jamaica, beginning at age 14, before moving to the United Kingdom. I was struggling, with work, life, my identity, I couldn't find my place; frustration fueled the song. Most of the time it was France but sometimes it was Germany. It was a very frustrating time. I came to England with very big hopes and I saw my hopes fading. And that song came out of that experience. Cliff stated he was working on his second album for Island Records , but held the song back because he did not think a ballad would be appropriate.
Well, sometimes they cant. On top of his work schedule, there are other demands on his time like his family and friends. Consider also the evolving perspective of the potential husband. Whenever you're down or lonely, read the yellow bits. He just started studying for the boards. I'd suggest the essays.
Yes you are all correct it's lonely and rewarding at the same time But we can continue to make it work. He was not a prominent man in the church. Yes, do sever the relationship.
