  • This is an old song of Liddle's - it was previously titled "Shallow Bed" and was re-imagined by Dry the River for the album. The singer explained to The Sun why he co-opted the song's old name for their first record. "We liked the fact that the album would be titled under an old theme or idea," he said. "It seemed to pull together all of what we've been through."
