  • Lyrics
  • This song co-written by Corinne Bailey Rae, John Beck, and Steve Chrisanthou was Bailey Rae's breakthrough hit. She recalled to Billboard magazine: "It was a shock to me. I thought it was going to be much more of an underground record because it was underproduced. I wasn't expecting that reaction at all."
  • The song's opening line, "Three little birds sat on my window/And they tell me I don't need to worry," is a reference to Bob Marley & The Wailers' 1980 hit single "Three Little Birds."
