A single from Biffy Clyro's, 2002 debut album, Blackened Sky, this became the band's first chart entry when it peaked at #61 on the UK singles chart.
An early version of the song, with different vocals and guitars, appeared on Biffy Clyro's debut 2000 EP, thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow.
The song was written at an important time in frontman Simon Neil's life. It's tale of heartbreak is about hurt, but also of moving on and what comes next. "It was about trying to become a man," explained Neil in Kerrang! magazine. "Leaving home, deciding to take a chance on the band and putting everything into that."
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
