  • This was co-written by Gwen Stefani with Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley. Stefani says in the Daily Mail September 28, 2007: "I did this when Kingston (her child) was just three months old. I wanted a nostalgic number like Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face" or Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time."
  • Rice-Oxley played piano on this track.
  • The music video by Sophie Muller was filmed while Stefani was on her Sweet Escape tour, and includes scenes shot on the streets of Budapest, Milan, and Prague.
