The singer revealed to The Independent that this track and the other songs on I Cry When I Laugh are about her relationship and break-up with a female romantic partner. "The songs on this album are about a girl," she explained. "I would never lie about a situation I've been in. I feel like with the album I'm putting my cards out on the table. I wouldn't want it to be misconstrued and the fact of the matter is those songs are about a girl. I was heartbroken about a girl, it wasn't a guy."
