Songfacts®:

  • This slow-building tender ballad finds Jessie Ware a broken woman after the end of a relationship. However she realizes such break-ups are an important step towards self discovery. Ware co-wrote the song with Jimmy Napes and William "Tourist" Phillips, who also collaborated with Sam Smith on his "Stay With Me" hit tune. The cut was produced by Emile Haynie of Lana Del Rey's Born To Die album fame.
