Songfacts®:

  • Jessie told The Sun about this warm R&B number, which it is rumoured was once earmarked for Alicia Keys: "One of the first love songs I ever wrote. I actually recorded it and never wanted anyone to hear it because love is super personal but the song just kept coming back to me and I thought sod it, it's obviously meant to be heard. I definitely think it's a wedding song – Kate and Will, holla at your girl!"
  • The bisexual singer admitted in the record's track-by-track video that she wanted to keep the song from the world, as its about falling in love with a girlfriend.
  • Jessie J told The Daily Telegraph this was written about "the only person I've been in love with." She added: "'We're very close still and, you know, they're one of my best mates. They're very close to me still and if one day I feel like I've got more time…" She trailed off before saying, "That's not the last song I'll write about that person."
