  • Little Green Cars band member Faye O'Rourke told The Sun the story behind this song: "I was going through boxes of old birthday cards and stuff and I came across a poem I had written when I was 13," she said. "That became the verse of this song. It was strange to revisit that place because I had forgotten about those emotions."
