  • Lyrics
  • Cardle penned this schmaltzy number with British songwriters Martin Harrington, Ash Howes, Richard "Biff" Stannard and LA-based singer/songwriter Tom Leonard. The X Factor winner told the The Sun the tune is "about finding someone when you've got no one."
  • In 2016 songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard sued Ed Sheeran. They claimed he copied this song "note-for-note" for his hit single "Photograph." Cardle distanced himself from the lawsuit, tweeting, "This is not my lawsuit. I think Ed Sheeran is a genius and 100 per cent deserves all his success."
