  • Lyrics
  • This song is the second track on English electro pop duo La Roux's self-titled debut album.
  • Singer Elly Jackson's actor father voiced the creepy spoken word section on this song.
  • The dark lyrics on many of the tracks of La Roux's debut album were taken from sad-sack poems that Jackson wrote when she was a school girl. This cut for instance, features lyrics about stalking a former lover. "All the songs are sad," Jackson told Rolling Stone. "It was quite intense."
