This was the debut single for the English pop/soul singer and actress Paloma Faith. The theme of the song is the predicament of appearing to be one thing and actually being quite another.
The video was directed by Sophie Muller, (No Doubt, Beyonce, Leona Lewis, Duffy, Kings of Leon).
Faith told Q July 2009 about the Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful album: "My vocal style suits the subject matter of my album. It's about the human condition, the constant striving for love and companionship. I've thrown my heart at many a wrong man in my time, I can't tell you. I'm the queen of tragedy. Melancholy informs everything I do."
