This light-hearted love song about an old friend of Heap's was written by her in Hawaii during an extended round the world writing trip. It ends wryly: "And this is where I was going to sing your name/Over and over again.../But I chickened out in the final minute/'Cos I thought you probably wouldn't like it."
After competing her round the world trip Heap finished the album at her childhood home in Essex, converting her old playroom in the basement into a studio. She told The Sunday Times that the album got its name from the distinctive elliptical shape of the house.
