Information about song
This song has attained cult status amongst fans, and of Keane's early songs, is considered to be the closest in style to the songs released during the Hopes and Fears era. As mentioned above, the song is also notable because it is a rare example of a Keane song written and composed by Chaplin, according to a comment Hughes is believed to have made to a fan after a gig. This is in contrast to virtually every other Keane song, for which the primary composer and songwriter is Rice-Oxley. This song's demo is often considered better than the released version as it follows a softer style and rhythm changes.
