Songfacts®:

  • Jessie described this dance track in an interview with The Sun as "one of the most honest and raw songs on Who You Are." She added: "Every time I sing it I relive the moment that I wrote it about. I think it's important to expose your flaws in music as well as your positives. As it says, Nobody's Perfect. I'm definitely not!"
