Album: Which Bitch? (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features a collaboration with fellow Scot Paolo Nutini. Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) told The View Are On Fire that he "was thinking about him - like his kind of music and the way he sings it," when he was writing this song. The band then "recorded it in a simple way and then Paulo happened to be next door in the studio. So I just says, 'D'you want a shot at singing on it?' It was already finished, there was no intentions of anybody else singing on it. So he just did a couple of my verses and they sounded good together."
  • Falconer explained to The View Are On Fire: "It's a song about being selfish in the middle of the night when I can't get to sleep and I'll pull the covers off my girlfriend to get a conversation. But it's also about someone trying to tell me what to do about the relationship and it's me saying that I don't want his opinion."
