Songfacts®:

  • This haunting, piano-led number about obsessive compulsive disorder is one of the few songs that touch on matters of the heart on the album. Marina commented to The Sun February 5, 2010: "Because I am not over-sensitive I don't write and gush about love, as a lot of songwriters do, but this one does touch on it, about seeing someone for what they are."
