  • Morrison told The Sun September 25, 2008 that he wrote this song during the time of his first album. He added: "It's a good link between the last record and this one. And it felt quite apt, given what I was going through. I'd just got my record deal and I was starting to travel quite a lot and it was this f---ing mental life."
  • James Morrison told the Daily Mail August 29, 2008 about this heartfelt ballad: "There are so many white soul singers trying to do Motown. I wanted to move away from that."
