Songfacts®:

  • The Vaccines had reservations about including this cut on English Grafitti. Vocalist Justin Hawkins told The Sun: "It's a love song. And it was important that it went on the album - and last - because it's very different. We were very scared about putting it on the album as we thought it sounded like Coldplay. I love Coldplay but that's a scary thing. It was inspired by helplessness and desperation."
