  • This tune was the result of Olly Murs's first writing session in LA with Andrew Frampton, Steve Kipner and Julian Bunetta, the trio behind hits for The Script and JLS. He quipped to Glamour magazine: "This song is my 'get-the-violins-out' ballad on the album haha. It's basically me saying that I hope one day I'll fall in love and settle down."
  • Murs regularly played a stripped back version of the song unaccompanied on the piano during his Right Place Right Time Tour. He described his solo performances as "pretty daunting."
