In an interview with Observer Music Monthly (February 2007), Joss Stone confirms the song is about her former boyfriend, Beau Dozier. Said Stone: "Yeah, of course! I'm a very honest girl. I'm still friends with him, and we wrote a song together. But I still feel the pain from the things that he did. There're so many stories I could tell that I probably shouldn't because I don't want anybody to see him in a bad light."
