Album: I Like It When You Sleep...Released: 2016
Matty Healy sings on this fragile and poignant track about the death of his grandma, reminiscing on their times together. He wishes she could just walk into the room again, so that he could tell his nana about all the events that have happened since she passed away.
Like the other songs on I Like It When You Sleep, this was mainly written by Healy and drummer George Daniel. Healy said: "The vocabulary that George and I share is unspoken, it's like shorthand. There is a bit in 'Nana' where it all stops, and I remember George saying, 'Let's just put a memory in there; let's just have it open up and your vocal can become distant and you can put a memory in there' and I was like: 'F---ing hell.'"
