A track from Paolo Nutini's debut album, this song is about Nutini's grandfather who passed away when Paolo was 12 years old.
Nutini's family has owned a fish and chip shop for generations in his hometown Paisley in Scotland. When Nutini was a child and his parents were busy working in the store, they would send him to his grandfather's house, which is where he was first introduced to music. He witnessed his grandfather experience the different stages of grief about the death of his grandmother. Nutini spoke to The Big Issue about watching his grandfather channel those emotions into music. "He'd be sat at the piano with his glasses with the brown tint, head up, eyes closed, and just playing these beautiful arias from Aida and other operas," he said. "Every now and again I can even remember the wee tear trickling down. To me he was just singing and looking up and he was just like, 'I hope you can hear this, darling.'"
