Matt Terry shows his vulnerable side on this emotional ballad, as he sings about losing love. He said:
"Heartbreak is something that everyone has been through. It's one of the worst feelings in the world and you don't think you're ever going to get over it. I've been through it and this track sums up exactly how I felt at the time."
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
