Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Amelia Lily recalling a relationship she had with a Los Angeles-based guy, which foundered because of their conflicting schedules. "It's actually about an ex of mine, but I thought the story was great because obviously I want people to relate to it," the singer told Digital Spy.

    "It's a fun, summery song," the English singer added, "and I want people to have a great feeling when they listen to it."
  • The song's music video was filmed in Los Angeles, as we see Lily she take on her beau in a tennis match as well as the pair hanging out at Santa Monica pier.
