Songfacts®:

  • Noah and The Whale close their Heart Of Nowhere album with this contemplative cut, which frontman Charlie Fink chose an under-rehearsed take to give added immediacy. "With all our records I hope there's some level of journey from beginning to end – the whole is greater than the sum of its parts," he explained to The Independent. "[The record] starts out with a melodramatic, angst-ridden story, about a kid wanting to break away from his family and be someone new, and it evolves into the last song about acceptance."
  • Fink told Q magazine that this song "focuses on that idea of finding your own way to be a man."
