"The copper came to the door, to tell us about the accident. It was just like it's supposed to be, the way it is in the films. Asking if I was her son, and all that. Then he told us, and we both went white. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me."

They were the ones I wrote from experience, not projecting myself into a situation and writing a nice story about it, which I always thought was phoney. On "Help!", the lyric is as good now as it was then. It was just me singing help, and I meant it.'
