Musically , it is sonically crafted with percussive keyboard effects that seem to breath , the underlying chimes add a sense of beauty and a feeling of nostalgia. The song helped Young establish a substantial fan base, especially in the Christian community, but he didn't follow up the song with similar hits, which doesn't bother him. I wanted to sing about my inability to sleep in a whimsical way that portrayed the condition as lighthearted and almost more of a 'blessing' than a curse.

Well i think thats what that song means.

Morozov from Fremont, NeI'm just going to say that they put this on the radio too much. None of you understand that this song was 1 in the charts in over 8 countries, worldwide.

On the , it was ranked thirtieth. Sure, it's a thoughtful song, but I find it too simple to be so great.
