  • Mojo magazine commented that the lyric, "If you ain't gonna do me right. I might just do you in" sounds a bit extreme. Bradley responded laughing: "I just said it the way I feel it in my heart. Everybody was thinking I was being very aggressive, but I was saying, 'Don't do me wrong, I won't do you wrong.' We all gotta make things right. I just like that feeling, and the fundamental of the music gimme that zozz feeling where I can just let go."
