Great rhythm smooth beat. One of my favorites my Amy.

Taken from her debut album 'This Is The Life', which sold more than 3 million copies mainly in Europe. This catchy song showcases her great, unique vocal sound and talented guitar playing.

It reached No12 in the UK Charts and is about a man and women who could have got together when they were younger.

Another great poppy-acoustic guitar sound song, like Mr. Rock 'n' Roll and This Is The Life.
