Out of Tears is totally Mick's (composition).
Out of Tears (is completely mine). (It came j)ust kind of very quickly.
There's no set way to write songs. I used to say, Now we're writing songs. I'm gonna sit at my desk. Out of Tears was a little bit like that, where I'm sitting at the piano in Ronnie's studio going Da da ding, da da ding. Then you go and listen to it, and it's got this really good mood because it's you on your own. No one else is there, and you're creating the mood. There's a very sad mood to that song. The Stones are mainly a guitar band, but I think with a ballad sometimes it's nice to move away from that. And when a song is written on a keyboard, you get a different sort of melodic structure.
Both Mick and I like to do that. You can have an idea for a song, and you play it on guitar and it just doesn't work. And then you try it on piano and suddenly it starts to make sense to you. Then you can go back to guitar and it all falls into place. To be able to write on a couple of different instruments gives you a whole different feel on a song.
