“It’s a retelling of a true relationship that I had with somebody through the story of somebody else, even if it doesn’t begin with ‘Once upon a time’. Deanna was a girl I knew when I was about eight. She lived in a trailer on the outskirts of the town with her old man who was basically this drunken, wretch of a character. Our relationship was kept a secret from him because he frequently beat her. I was just one day older than her. It was a very equal relationship we had. Anyway, we used to play truant from school and go to this little hideaway that she had fashioned under this bridge over a dry river creek. It was impossible to get to because of the briar that surrounded it. But she made this tunnel through the briar. Inside this place she had a collection like a magpie’s nest. We used to go on these day raids on the different houses around the town. We knew the people wouldn’t be in the houses and we used to eat their food, lie on their beds, and steal all sorts of stuff like letters, cutlery, clothes and money. The story is important because I’ve tried to write a lot of songs about it. One day we robbed a house and found a handgun which we took back to our little grotto. We, I should add, robbed by ourselves, separately also. One day she was caught by this guy who was in this religious instruction teacher’s house. The wife of this teacher thrashed her and the guy did something to her, but I really don’t know what it was. The next day I was woken up by my mother and had to answer all these questions from the police. Deanna had gone back to the home and shot the strange man and woman in the religious teacher’s house. How the stranger fitted into their lives was a bit of a scandal. That’s the basis for the song. I’ve tried to write about it many times but I’ve never felt able to do it justice because it sounds like some sort of fantasy or some Disneyland type of thing. Nonetheless, after that happened she was taken off to some sort of child psychiatric place. And I was taken out of (the local) high school and sent to the big smoke to a strict all boys boarding school to have a bit of sense knocked into me. I dunno.”

Israel Stands by Saudi Prince Against Iran, Despite Khashoggi - Bloomberg
One senior Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said his government was lobbying the Trump administration to move on. If necessary, the official said, the U.S. might impose some kind of reprimand on the Saudis, like canceling an arms deal, while keeping alive the core alliance against Iran.
