This is the title track from the fourth studio album by Katie Melua. The Georgian-born British singer-songwriter originally penned almost an album's worth of material in a matter of weeks, only to discard it. "Those songs were me dealing with a lot of personal emotions in a very dark way," she told The Sunday Times. "I got heavily into poets like Anne Carson and Alice Notley, and, I suppose, tried to write a bit like them. I overflourished. I loved the lyrics I'd written, but only as pieces of poetry. As words to put to music, they didn't work."
Only this slow, mournful track survived the cull, Melua scrapped the rest and started again, working with several other songwriters, including Robbie Williams's long-time writing partner, Guy Chambers, Melua's friend Polly Scattergood, and Grammy/ Ivor Novello award winning songwriter/producer, Rick Nowels.
Melua told The Daily Telegraph May 5, 2010: "If this album is about something, it's the puzzle of being alive, the mind maze of going inside your head and trying to figure out what the hell is going on in there."
