Songfacts®:

  • This heart-on-sleeve weepie about seeing an ante-natal scan of a baby daughter was inspired by Mike Skinner's impending fatherhood. He told The Daily Record: "I'm interested in the point at which technology becomes part of an emotional experience - at the heart of a story, not just the way that story If them is told. That's what a lot of this album is about and the experience this song describes is probably the purest example of it."
