This is one of several songs on Tape Deck Heart
inspired by the heartache Frank Turner
felt after coming out of a long-term relationship. The singer actually names the woman who ripped his heart out ("goddamit, Amy") before he describes teenage self-harm with a razor. Turner told NME
the track borrows a "stark, harrowing emptiness" from early Neil Young and Ryan Adams records. "It's very, very raw," he added.
