  • Lyrics
  • Marina Diamandis, who records under the name Marina and the Diamonds, finds it hard to get close to people in relationships, and tracks like this one and "Numb" deal with this subject matter. She explained to The Sun February 5, 2010: "They are both about being emotionally detached. Even though I'm this jolly and bubbly person on the surface, I'm very different with certain people."
  • This was originally included on Marina's 2009 The Crown Jewels EP.
