My Baby Left Me
by Rox

Songfacts®:

  • This is the follow-up to London-based singer-songwriter Rox's debut single "No Going Back." Like most of her songs it's based on real events and circumstances and in this instance it manages to convey both shattered heartache and fierce resolve.
  • Rox's debut album is titled Memoirs. She explained why to The Daily Mirror March 12, 2010: "Between 18 and now I grew up quite a lot. I fell out of love, fell in love with someone else and got hurt. A lot of the songs come from that. I went to Mexico to teach and do charity work. At first, I laughed when people said I would really find myself there, but I did. It happened. I wanted to take a rest from music, but there was an abandoned guitar in the college where I was teaching and I wrote lots of songs. It was a good way for me to get over the hurt. All the things I couldn't say to my ex in person were channeled into the songs. I'm very proud, so I hate the idea of someone getting the better of me. I can admit to it in a song."
