Album: I See You (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Over minimal keys chords and a simple guitar melody, Romy Madley Croft sings here about drawing strength from the memory of her late parents. Her mother died when she was 11 and she lost her father nine years later when she on tour in Paris with the xx during the band's early days. This is the first time she's written about her parents.
