This is a single from the British five-piece rock band Frankie & The Heartstrings. Guitarist Michael McKnight explained the song's meaning to NME: "A bitter account of a relationship ending just when you thought everything was too good to be true. We were listening to a lot of Josef K at the time and I think you can really hear it in the guitars and bass line."
Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
