Songfacts®:

  • Faith penned this slice of synth pop after recalling the fun that she had while singing with a busker she met in in London's Leicester Square when she was just 14. "I asked him if he'd be there the next day and he said he would," she said. "When I went back he was gone and I've never forgotten it."
  • Faith wrote the song with English pop songwriter Chris Braide, who has writing credits on a number UK and US hits, including Clay Aiken's "This Is The Night," Will Young's "Anything is Possible" and Leon Jackson's "Don't Call This Love."
