Album: Write It On Your Skin (2012)
Charted: 68
  • Faulkner revealed to The Sun how this song about going through hard times and hoping better things come along contains some of his favorite lyrics on the Write It On Your Skin album. He explained: "I don't think singing about how great stuff is has much of a place at the moment, because there's a lot of horrible things going on, and a lot of people having a really hard time. So I took a more reassuring angle, that things might not be so great now, but they're definitely going to get better."
