Marling sings of a crumbling relationship with a father figure lover accompanied just by her acoustic guitar. The lyric of this sparse waltz is laden with guilt and recrimination. "You were my speaker/My innocence keeper."
The song is written in the form of a communication by Marling to her former beau. She told The Independent: "Someone told me a good writing tip is to write conversations with people you can't have conversations with, that it's quite useful for developing characters. I did that a lot while I was writing this album. There's of a lot of one-sided conversations in it."
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
