  • Knight co-wrote this song with Jamie Hartman of Ben's Brother. It is from the British soul and R&B singer's sixth studio album, 100%.
  • Knight explained on her website: "This as the title suggests is a stripped down semi-live production of a 6/8 classic time signature soul ballad." She added: "The key is deliberately low, as it produces a warmer, richer sound from my vocal in the verses. It is a song with a journey, it crescendos three quarters of the way through and then falls away right at the end. It is about the fear of opening up your heart entirely to someone you know you are in love with, because it is at that point you become the most vulnerable. I went through this last year in the earlier stages of my relationship with my boyfriend. We've all been there."
