  • Lyrics
  • Duffy in The Sun February 29, 2008: "I had all these ideas in my head and the song really moved, had a snappiness to it. We recorded it in about an hour and a half. I remember Jimmy (Hogarth) sitting in while I was finishing it off and Eg (White) had just left for something. It was spontaneous and I love that song. Over the four years, I was having more and more of a say because I was understanding more. At the start, I left a lot of room for people to bring things to the table. I needed to find a direction for myself because I didn't really know music, didn't really have any reference points. Now, I have quite a firm opinion and input. The whole thing was a learning curve."
