Album: Coming Up For Air (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The song's music video features Superbad actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse as a determined, injured jockey preparing for a return to horse riding. The clip was made in support of the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.
  • The video was originally shot for a different band, but they hated it. Kodaline's Mark Prendergast explained to Digital Spy: "We'd just made a video and we hated it, so we saw theirs and thought, 'That's f---ing great'. So we e-mailed management, the band, everyone and was like, 'We'd love to take this video' and we sent them our song. They all said, 'Yeah, we love it.'"
