Songfacts®:

  • The second single released by British Pop-Rock band Lawson finds singer Andy Brown recalling falling in love with Mollie King from The Saturdays. It is more uplifting than their debut single, "When She Was Mine," which was about their ensuing break-up. Said Brown: "I felt it was important we had a song on there about the good times as well as the sad."
  • The song's music video, which was filmed in Los Angeles, shows the band on a road trip meeting some beautiful girls along the way.
  • Discussing the meaning behind the track in a behind-the-scenes video, bassist Ryan Fletcher explained: "'Taking Over Me' is actually about the new aspect of falling in love. It's the first month when it's all kicking off and you've just met each other."
