Roger Hodgson Co-founder of Supertramp wrote this song when he was just 17 years old; he radiates it when he sings it. It is signature Roger Hodgson, even though you may remember it from when Roger was with Supertramp. It's so incredible to hear it live directly from the person who wrote it. Roger plays performs concerts with other artists, unplugged, with a band and with orchestra.

Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time. The songs Roger sings that are often referred to as Supertramp songs are songs that Roger wrote and composed alone - that is how he creates music. Even though Roger and Rick shared writing credit, they each wrote and composed separately. Roger wrote many of the band's hits while he was still in his teens, before he even met Rick. When Roger was with Supertramp, he would make a demo of the song and bring it to the band for them to learn their parts. Supertramp as a band never wrote and composed together.
There were only two songwriters for the band. The songs Roger sings lead vocals on are the ones he composed the music and lyrics for, and the songs Rick sings lead vocals on are the ones that he wrote.
