Hearts Colloid

  • songfacts ®
  • Little Boots told Artist Direct the story behind this song: "This song came about when I'd just met my boyfriend actually. I hadn't really been with anyone for a long time. The song's about how when you're not looking, that can happen! I was so immersed in music at the time. You're going along on your business and, all of a sudden, you have this collision with someone. It's like we're all atoms floating around. Then we hit someone else and explode. It stops everything. It's about colliding with somebody that you're meant to be with and not really expecting it. Everything changes after that though."
