Speaking with Digital Spy
in September 2012, Example admitted he didn't originally write this song with himself in mind. He explained: "I was in a writing session about six months ago and I wrote 'Chasing The Sun
' on the Monday - I didn't realise it would be for The Wanted at that time - and 'Close Enemies' on the Tuesday. I didn't know who it was going to be for. I was just writing big pop songs for whoever. I liked it so much, I just tweaked the lyrics to make it suit me, but originally I imagined it suiting someone like Rihanna."
