Songfacts®:

  • Frontman James Allan told the Sunday Mail: "'You' is a song I thought at the time I was writing about someone else. About Rab [guitarist Rab Allan who is also James' cousin] actually. I was thinking of him a lot at the time. He's as deep as the ocean. But later I discovered I was talking about getting to know myself."
