This mellow, atmospheric song is a collaboration between the British singer-songwriters Simon Jefferis and Benedict Cork. It's a love song where they acknowledge love don't come easy, but promise to give it their all. On the Songfacts Podcast, Cork told the story
: "We wrote that song in Simon's front room in Brixton on a rainy November morning. Simon has a wonderful wife called Cara, who is American. They'd been long-distance dating for years, and they finally got married a few years before he wrote that song. They are just the sunniest couple, the loveliest people. I was definitely not in love at that point, and all I could think about when we were writing that song was them and their relationship.
So, it just felt like it had to be something really positive and really feel-good because I love writing about heartbreak and I love writing about deep emotion, but when Simon played that guitar riff and the chords, I was like, "This is going to be a happy song." So that's where that came from."
