  • Lyrics
  • This was the fourth single and title track from English alternative Rock band Elbow's debut album. It was their first ever UK Top 20 hit.
  • Singer Guy Garvey told Drowned in Sound about this song: "We only added this after the album was finished, bizarrely. Quite often when you're in love you find yourself testing your partner in the early stages of a relationship; telling them all the naff things about you, the dark stuff about you - almost testing how far their love goes (at least I used to do so). It was wonderful working with (producer) Ben Hillier, and this track, I think, is sonically one of the most interesting we did with him."
