Album: The Ugly People Vs. The Beautiful People (2001)
  • This was the first song that Czars founding member John Grant wrote that felt like an actual song. He told American Songwriter magazine: "It's just a basic song about unrequited love, but it was the first time I was really able to be myself and write in my own voice and actually let my own personality be seen. That was very satisfying for me."
