The chorus for this post-breakup track came to The Struts' Luke Spiller when he was sitting on the toilet during a songwriting session in the studio. He told Louder Sound
that while the rest of the band was playing with the idea they'd had previously, he was working through the new hook in his head and noting it down on his phone. He then dashed in and performed it on the piano to his bandmates.
They went for the idea and continued to write the song together, "firing all these ideas out, all these things that get said when you're basically not over someone and you've met someone."
