Natalie and all involved obviously put a lot of effort into this track.  I wish I liked it better.

Her being billed over Joni? Yeah,that IS scary (and unimaginable).Freakish even.It's like if America,Russia,China and North Korea formed a military alliance and the combined Armed Forces of Sweden and Guatemala kicked their ass.

Genius. Saw her play this live in 1999 (Joni Mitchell was the support act!) and it nearly scared the bleep out of me. Superb.

"Ich seh das Leben im rosigen Lichte und geniesse es auf´s Äusserste".
This is the last sentence which means, free translated from the poetical words:
I see Life in a pink (shiny) light and enjoy it massively.

I did not  like this song initiallly, but I did like Natalie.  With some patience and thought, I'm now finding new depths and layers with every play.
