Songfacts®:

  • 2010 X-Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson penned this ballad with hitmaker Eg White, whose resume also includes co-writing Will Young's "Leave Right Now" and Adele's "Chasing Pavements."
  • Speaking with The Sun, Ferguson explained this tale of dysfunctional love: "It's just about a destructive relationship where you just love each other but you're absolutely no good for each other."
  • "I wanted to make the listener think about love and relationships," Ferguson said in publicity materials regarding the song. "So many times we lose track of what's important in love, and I've written about the classic dysfunctional relationship where you have two people in love, they just don't know HOW to love. It's very honest!"
