Before the writing process for In the Belly of the Brazen Bull began, The Cribs were hit hard by the news that a fan they had met had taken his own life. This song was the eventual result. "We were supposed to go to Coachella, but we got grounded because of the volcano ash," bassist Gary Jarman recalled to NME: "I wrote this acoustic song, then found out one of our fans had committed suicide. The band meant a lot to him, and I'd met him outside the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh. When someone cares about what you do, you have this real degree of responsibility."
