Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Sam Smith's debut EP. He explained the song's meaning to Interview Magazine: "There were four of us in the room and we all wrote it about things individually. It's about doing something at night time, one night, and not worrying commitment or worrying about anything else in life. It's about something—a person, a thing—taking over you and taking you to somewhere just for a little bit."
