Album: Cinderella's EyesReleased: 2011
Roberts penned this song with Joseph Mount of Metronomy. The lyrics are a list of insecurities and observations, set against a sitar and some synth noises. She told The Guardian that it's her favourite song on the album. "I love it. It sounds like a funeral song. When we first started working, there were loads of tracks, and some were really commercial. I think [Joe] assumed that was what I was going to do."
Both Roberts and Girls Aloud are signed to Polydor, which is owned by Universal Music Group. Some reviewers have queried if there's an additional meaning to this song's lyric, "I don't like that you won't let me speak controversially/ Because you think that it won't sit well universally."
Roberts has described this as "a funeral song." The Independent asked how her record label reacted to such a deathly curio? She replied, with knowing petulance: "At first, management were like, 'I don't get it.' But I was like, 'Well it's not your album.'"
