Produced and written by Lianne La Havas with English born-Nashville based white soul singer Jamie Lidell, this tune finds the songstress recounting the journey that she's been on since she was a child. She explained to Q magazine: "It was written after I went to Jamaica with my mum and it got me thinking about growing up in London and having a Jamaican mum and a Greek dad."
"I wanted to tell a story about that so my mum and dad could hear it and know how much it means to me that they are my parents," La Havas continued. "I spent a lot of time away from my family during the last album and I finally had the time to get into the swing of being around them again."
Lianne La Havas used the lyric "ancient stone" in this song to represent Greece and her Greek father, who was a stone mason.
