Damon Albarn admits here the intrinsic infidelity of creativity over an acoustic guitar and string figure. Uncut magazine asked the Blur frontman if it thinks the pursuit of an artistic vision is damaging to emotional stability? He replied: "I think it definitely can be. Because, as a songwriter, you need to feel stuff for it to come out honestly. And how do you do that? You do that by being curious, and curiosity is a very open book for a lot of f--k-ups in life."
Albarn explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "I'd talk about relationships with my family, from childhood to now," he said. "It's driven by mistakes, happiness, dreams, expectations. How you find yourself locked in cycles and how you get out of them."
"I know that my experience is very similar to other people," he continued. "I'm offering some of the more difficult stuff. I'm posing a question to everyone else as well."
