The phrase “mother cries” appears in both ‘Mother London’ (Jansen/Barbieri) and ‘I Surrender’ (David Sylvian). Two songs I quite enjoy. Being that your track was released before David’s — and being that those two words are repeated emotional highs in each song — did you view his use of those two words as a kind of “hello” from David or was this purely coincidental?

I wasn’t aware of this but I’m certain it was pure coincidence.
