Default The World Tonight

I was listening to this song yesterday and remembered that it always makes me think of Princess Diana, especially the part "I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi..." I did some research but couldn't seem to find any information on what he was thinking of as he wrote it. Does anyone know? I'm pretty sure it isn't actually about Princess Diana, but it just always makes me think of her.

I don't know about that, all I know is that Little Willow is cointained actually also in a CD tribute to Diana ...

I've always maintained that it was just any paparazzi, for any celebrity. I dunno how many of you are into backwards recordings, but on this song, I think that the faded "I can see the world" sounds like "Save the animals fur Linda Eastman." Who knows...

Yeah! I think of Princess Di when I hear that line. But the song was released a couple of months before her death. It wasn't written for her, but its a bit eerie I think.
