  • Lyrics
  • Frontman Harry McVeigh told The Sun January 16, 2009, that this anthemic track, which features a 20-piece orchestra, is an important song for the band. He explained: "We only had a very rough version of it when we went into the studio but it came together very quickly. It's got a huge string section on it and sounds big and grand. That was exactly the sound we wanted from the album and when we achieved that so early on, it was a great moment for us."
