  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Ian Watkins explained this song to Kerrang! magazine. He said: "I just wanted to write a song that said, 'c'mon lad, you can't be like this forever, sort it out.' It's not about anyone specifically, but I wanted to create that safety that everyone yearns for if they've gone off the rails - being there for someone whether they want you to be or not."
