Songfacts®:

  • Penned by Jessie Ware with Kid Harpoon (Florence + the Machine's "Shake It Out," Calvin Harris' "Sweet Nothing") and Sarah Aarons (Zedd's "Stay," Demi Lovato's "Lonely"), this soulful choir-imbued track is, in the singer's own words, a song about "stealing time away with your loved one and longing for the simple declaration that they want the same."
  • The nostalgic video was shot by director Charlie Robbins in the art deco surrounds of Eltham Palace in South East London.
