  • Brown told Clash Magazine about the song's lyrical content: "It's the basic sentiment that we're all unique, I wanted to express that like, I don't know just cause I'm some kind of pop star doesn't mean I'm not the same as my mate whose a scaffolder, y'know what I mean? We both have to take the rough with the smooth you know. Everything's out of our power and out of our control, we have to keep a smile on our face, when it rains every day. No matter what position you are in life, we're basically all the same, we all require the same things, we all dream the same dreams probably."
