Its widely agreed that it is about Both Mick And Anita, but on different levels. It can be interpreted as being about either person.

Keith's confirmed that - and added that it's more about himself than anyone
I think this song was the start of Keith's crooner phase which has continued up until today with songs like "Thief In The Night," "This Place Is Empty," etc., etc. At least its the first song in that mode I can remember off the top of my head.
I thought of Memory Motel but don't really count it because he doesn't sing lead on the whole thing. Coming Down Again and You Got The Silver, though, good points on those.
......... Keith is the best at writing slower blues/country tracks and not just the same old love songs you hear all the time...
It's my favourite Keith-song (I think).
It would be great to see him perform it live, although I think the timing is quite difficult on this one, the all about you lines.
I like the horns in this one.
Keith seems to really make these slow burning songs work really well. When I listen to his fast stuff and then the slow stuff, I prefer the slow stuff. Slower.
