This song finds vocalist Orlando Weeks singing of someone trying to paper over the cracks of a relationship filled with difficulties. It features guitarist Felix White on the piano. White told NME: I decided I wanted to learn piano. I still only know three chords, but even just D and G felt exciting."
White co-wrote the song. He was inspired by listening to Bob Dylan's 1997 album Time Out Of Mind and Daniel Lanois's "spooky, classic production."
