  • Lyrics
  • This song appears only on the American edition of Rebecca Ferguson's debut album, Heaven. She explained why to Artist Direct: "It was meant to be on the original album in the UK. It wasn't produced in time though, and I wanted to get it just right. I'm really happy it made the US version. It's basically about cheating. Someone is cheating and they have an excuse for absolutely everything. If you listen to the lyrics, it's quite sad. It's offbeat too."
