This song was written by Paul Weller. Speaking with The Sun, Murs said that the former Jam frontman approached him at a gig to praise his cover of "Broken Stones," which first appeared on Weller's 1995 Stanley Road album. "Paul came up to me and said, 'I loved the version of 'Broken Stones' you did,' Murs recalled. ''He said, 'Are you writing at the moment? I'll send you some songs.'"
"We went into the studio and reworked one," he added. "To get an endorsement from the Modfather himself is special. He's a musical legend."
Speaking to Q magazine, Paul Weller explained his decision to write the song for Olly Murs: "I thought it would upset some people, but that's not why I did it," he said. "He did a good cover of 'Broken Stones' and so when I met him I said, 'Do you want a grown-up song?' It's a good song."
Murs admitted to The Daily Telegraph that he didn't like Weller's original version, feeling that it needed to be "a little more commercial." He said: "I rang Paul with my version, thinking he'd say no, but he loved it. That gave me a huge confidence boost."
