In promotional video on the Rolling Stones official website, Richards stated the song started one evening in his Connecticut home when his wife was out without him. He said he was sitting on a couch with the guitar and the song sparked. The final version is a bittersweet ballad where Richards pines for his familiar face.
Come on, bare your breasts/And make me feel at home/You and me we're just like all the rest/And we don't want to be alone.
It was formally recorded in Mick Jagger's estate in France. The song is notable for its clear piano opening and raspy vocal imprint. Largely an acoustic song, Richards performs guitar with Jagger performing slide guitar. Richards also performs bass and piano for the recording. Jagger played drums on the original recording, but Charlie Watts' drumming was later added.
