Songfacts®:

  • This Electro-pop ballad about dreaming of escape is the title track of Dido's fourth album, her first record since 2008's Safe Trip Home. The singer admitted to The Guardian that she takes her time to release her records, but this set was "nearly finished in 2010 and was ready to surprise everyone ... then I got pregnant and had a baby boy, Stanley!"
  • Dido told The Guardian that she decided to title the album after this song "because I do keep disappearing for a while between albums." She added: "I love the song of that name too ... it was the one that Stanley would kick to the most while I was singing it."
