This song was first recorded to be released as a single entitled Timewatch in 1991. In 1993, Neil re-recorded it for Liberation and it became entitled ‘Timewatching’.

The lyrics and the tune are largely based on Nat King Cole’s song ‘When I Fall In Love’ (please refer to ‘Timewatching’ for more details).

We don’t know if it was played live in 1991, though we can suppose it was. (If you have any info about it, please contact us.)
