  • Lyrics
  • This was released as the second single from Jake Bugg's eponymous debut album. It's one of several on the record for which Bugg drew on his own life experiences. He told The Sun: "As a songwriter, it's good to write about what you see but it's also nice to use your imagination a bit."
  • The song was used in the UK to soundtrack a national TV beer commercial for Greene King IPA.
  • Bugg wrote this in his bedroom. He recalled: "I had nothing to do, came up with a few chords, three chords. What I wanted to do, I didn't have a job, I left school I was living on a council estate just wanted to write a song a fantasy, really just place yourself somewhere else. It's a way of escaping not in the sense of 'Two Fingers' or 'Trouble Town' is about, but more psychological.
