Songfacts®:

  • Alison Mosshart sings here of a love falling apart. Her Kills bandmate Jamie Hince explained to Tonedeaf.com: "I wanted to write a soul song, because I felt like the drum machines are so relentless that I wanted some kind of soul feel in it. I used to get these old soul records and record them onto a computer, then map out where the bass drums were and start forming a drum beat around that soul feel."
