Songfacts®:

  • When writing this song, Jake Bugg tried something he used to do as a child: look at pictures and write stories inspired by them. "It was creating a story but as a painting. I was being one of those arty hipsters, I guess," he told The Independent. "Sometimes I have a character, sometimes it'll be more personal. Other times I won't really think about it until after the song, and then you look at it in a different way."
