Album: Weird Kids (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Singer Tay Jardine explained the song's meaning to Kerrang! October 18, 2014: "Manners is about a relationship that has gone sour. They're lyrics are about how hard you fall for that relationship without seeing the same effort in return."

    "It's something I had gone through a couple of years ago. Manners became almost like revenge. It was me saying, 'This is how I felt, but I wasn't able to say it at the time, when I was actually in that moment.'"
