by Mika

Album: Life In Cartoon Motion (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Mika described the story behind the song in an interview with the Sun newspaper February 2, 2007: "This is a breakup song. It's hard to write this sort of song. They often sound quite fake or trite so I guess I've Mika'ed it up so it still sounds like a good song with a darker lyric."
