There were nights I remember.. Waking up..tears streaming down my face…and no one laying next to me… the part of me I gave to you.. No one else ever had… .I remember… you would always win when we would race..even though I was taking a jogging course in college….I flipped you over trying a “Charlie’s Angel” move…and we were both shocked that it actually worked !..little random notes left on car windshields… walking through a meadows of wild flowers and grazing cows.. (for about two miles) after my inflatable tube leaked . ( on our Honeymoon)…..the “glow” on your face when our first child was born… nights we shared gazing at the stars, hoping to see falling stars… nights you stayed up with me trying to console my grieving heart when my mom passed away…. The part of you..You gave to me..the part of You ..We shared

I wish this wasn't an iTunes exclusive. If their are going to be B-sides then there should be a 45 version as well..... A guy can always hope.

Of course, I love SLC, but I had to come on here and say I LOVE the B-side!! I swear, all of the B-sides you write could stand on their own as singles or on albums, they're that good! :) All my love, Jenny

Will there be other download possibilities as well, or will the single and B-side only be available on i-tunes?

I think "Difficult Child" is totally Keane "bare bones"...amazingly sung by Tom, is such a beauty of a song..."Sovereign Light Café" keeps in my mind, I sing it all the time. It's a fantastic hymn to life and the value of friendship, that's the Thank you for being so amazing, and congratulations for this new and so special B side. Cheers and love to you all, from Portugal***

Difficult child - I'm so pleased, love those b-sides that Keane always put out!! Thank you Tim. My partner who likes Keane (but not as much as me) just turned around to me and said that he thinks Strangeland is Keanes best album yet. I can't agree becos I love all of their songs (well nearly!).

Is nice to see the name of my country ECUADOR in km.com! I'm so happy with this release, specially since I'm living in East Sussex for the summer, Hastings, where i saw keane... bexhill is awesome, the lady owner of the SLC is amazing, I liked the food there, I felt kinda like home! lets all celebrate this release! and what can I say about Difficult Child is one of those songs that is simple, with overwhelming lyrics and that sound that you can recognize is keane miles away, thank you for all the happiness that you bring into my life... brenda vega
