in the Songbook booklet he says:
:"A song about infidelity.-There's nothing like unrequited love with a touch of infidelity to capture people's imaginations."
He says he wrote it when he lived out in the country and there was always a beautiful sunset to the west of the barn and that imagery made it into the song. The cover pic was taken there where he is sitting on a bale of hay. He has fond memories of working there at the farmhouse.

Not robots, but space aliens disguised as hookers. At least that's what Val told me.

To be honest with you, I didn't fully get it till I saw the miniseries "Backstairs at the Whitehouse" and realized what backstairs meant.
