Songfacts®:

  • This solo release by The Saturdays' singer Una Healy is the lead single from her The Waiting Game album. Healy penned the tune with Amy Wadge, Grammy-winning co-writer of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud."
  • The track conveys the thoughts of two people who feel the same way about each other but can't find the words to say it. Healy duets on the tune with Sam Palladio, the British-born star of American TV drama Nashville. The Saturdays singer said of Palladio: "I love his music, his style, the Nashville country feel, it's exactly the direction I wanted my solo music to take and I am so pleased that Sam and I duetted on this track."
  • Palladio told Digital Spy regarding the duet. "It's a very simple, melancholy folk-pop song - which fits in my wheelhouse and certainly in her wheelhouse."
