  • Lyrics
  • This song is about Daman Albarn's breakup with his girlfriend, Elastica frontwoman Justine Frischmann. In an interview with The Observer, Frischmann confessed that she cried the first time she heard this song, then became irritated and embarrassed, before her attitude finally softened.
  • Damon Alban and Graham Coxon of Blur wrote the song and the two bandmates shared the vocals on the track. The London Community Gospel Choir performed the backing vocals.
  • This was kept off the UK #1 spot by Britney Spears' "…Baby One More Time."
