Album: True Romance (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Estelle's True Romance album. The singer explained to The Boombox that the record "on a whole is about the in-between period, of just being cool with yourself and being 100 percent with yourself in every situation you find yourself in before you end up married to someone or adjoining your life to someone. Those hard parts can be very extreme."

    Estelle added that this song is a good example of the album's concept. "I wrote that with the feeling of who I ultimately wanted to be," she said, "and feel when I am married to somebody."
  • Asked what her favorite song is on True Romance, Estelle replied that this tune is, because it was the "first one I thought was a contender for the album."
