Album: Happy People (2015)
  • Harry Koisser sings of his break-up with TV presenter and model Billie JD Porter on this ballad. It finds him acknowledging, "maybe I was this happened, so that both of us could grow." The vocalist told NME: "That was the first time I was writing about the stuff going on in my head – almost like writing songs, therapeutically, and then using the lyrics for stuff."
  • Koisser: "I feel like I was the only one who wanted this to go on the record. It started as a classic break-up song done just by me on acoustic guitar, then we added a few other instruments."
