Lostprophets lead vocalist Ian Watkins explained the song's meaning to Kerrang!: "This is about wanting another chance with someone, but you know it's not the best thing for them. So there's that battle of conscience - can you be the bigger person and let them go, or will you be selfish because you want them to stay? It feels like something from (Linkin Park's) Hybrid Theory."
Watkins told NME: "This was the first song we finished in these sessions. It's only one-track vocals, no harmonies or anything. I think we only did the song like three times and that was it, which was pretty crazy and was new for me. We didn't really expect that – just went in, sang the song three times and that was it. We didn't really think much of it, then we listened to it and it had a cool vibe about it."
