Songfacts®:

  • In this song the narrator is wishing his girlfriend would stop looking at celebrity magazines and realize how naturally beautiful she is. Frontman Luke Pritchard told IndieLondon: "We've never done a song like that before. A lot of people might think its quite standard, but when you listen to it, it's not. It's a really weird little tune. I'm really pleased with it."
