Album: How Did We Get So Dark? (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Asked about this track by The Sun, singer and bassist Mike Kerr replied: "We don't really design songs. It is only with hindsight that I realize what influenced it. It is a sort of psychedelic Weezer tune. It's fun."
  • When NME put it to Mike Kerr that tracks like this song, "I Only Lie," "When I Love You", and "Hole In Your Heart" make the How Did We Get So Dark record feel like a 'breakup' album, he replied:

    "It's been three years (since the last album), you know? So I've had relationships throughout that period. It's a subject matter I love writing about. It comes quite naturally to me. I definitely don't believe in writing about one person in particular or one experience because it kind of ruins it. Talking about lyrics and explaining songs - to me, you sabotage your art."
