Songfacts®:

  • James Arthur has met a young lady with whom he's smitten.

    And I need you to know that we're
    Fallin' so fast, we're fallin' like the stars, fallin' in love


    Arthur uses the celestial analogy of shooting stars falling to the ground as a metaphor for how fast and deeply he is falling in love with the girl.
  • James Arthur wrote the song with newcomers Anders Höjer and Jamie Grey. The production by Bradley Spence and Alex Beitzke is in the classic power ballad tradition. By adding additional layers of strings as the track progresses they enhance its romantic sentiments.
