It's one of my favorite songs from TUF; lovely impressionistic painting. I definitely got the part about a sort of boardwalk by the sea. I didn't know it referred to the Martello tower where he and Ali lived. Makes it even lovelier.

The song also references Cherry and Coca Cola but not Cherry Coke which came out a year later.

Bono bought a martello tower in 1984, just as U2 was finishing the Unforgettable Fire. The whole thing looks over the promenade in the seaside town of bray, and has a spiral staircase, and a glass roof from which you could see earth, sky, scenery or perhaps lightening light up the sky. When he bought it, it would have been protected by a barbed wire fence. The town of Bray in the 1980's would have had cracked streets that you would sidestep, sidewalk, overlooking the promenade where people would have drank coca-cola, played football and listened to radio,radio,radio
