Songfacts®:

  • Ellis-Bextor told The Sunday Telegraph that this song, "is about a woman who takes your photo and traps your soul in the picture." She added, grinning: "This is what comes of reading Russian fairy tales as a kid and doing Emily Dickinson at school."
  • Directed by Sophie Muller, the video was shot in Florence, Italy. Taking a cue from the song lyrics, Ellis-Bextor plays a wicked seductress who traps men and women in photographs and keeps them on her wall for all eternity.
