Album: Made Of Bricks (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Kate Nash told musicomh.com how this song came about: "I really like (the director) Tim Burton loads. I watched Vincent ages ago. It's a short film about a boy and it's narrated by Vincent Price... I babysit these 6 kids and they're so free and imaginative and a lot cleverer than you think. This one little girl really liked pink but also really liked football. She reminded me of Vincent, and I wanted to make a short film about a girl like her who glued her lips together. Memoirs Of A Geisha was out and sometimes I wish I could be like that, just elegant and never speak. I'm always getting myself into trouble coz I'm so loud and clumsy and scatty and annoying sometimes, and I want to start all over again and glue my lips together, never speak and everyone would be like, 'Oh, she's so mysterious.' This little girl didn't have any friends but she didn't care - she was in her own little world."
