  • Lyrics
  • Rae Morris told The Sun the story of this song. "It was a really exciting time because it was when I was still exploring different ways of writing," she said. "I was moving away from the piano ballad style that I was very attached to."

    "It was a way of introducing with them and a new element to the song," Morris continued. "It is about moving away from Blackpool and being away from my loved ones. In a way I was slowly finding out who I was."
