  • Lyrics
  • This aching acoustic plea finds Lykke Li imploring with her guy to love her "like I'm not made of stone." To be "made of stone" means that one seemingly has no emotions and the Swedish songstress is saying here that she doesn't want to be treated like an object.
  • The version of the song that we hear was Li's actual demo take. She told The Sun: "When I'm singing it for the first time in its full form. It's like I'm still trying to make sense of it, like two bodies making love for the first time."

    "It was only when I listened back to it that I realised the emotional weight of it," Li added. "It was fully cathartic as you can hear in the bridge, it really gets to my soul and heart. Love ain't easy."
  • The Tarik Saleh directed video is basically one long, unbroken close up of a traumatized Lykke Li. It is reminiscent of Sinead O'Connor's clip for "Nothing Compares 2 U."
