This was the second song we recorded, it began one night when I was singing the words and clicking along with my fingers, for no real reason, but I thought it sounded like the sort of thing that would be in 60's love song by Sam Cooke, or someone similar.
Later on Luke came up with a nice, repetitive chord idea on the acoustic and I started to sing the silly idea from earlier over the top, suddenly it changed the lyrics and melody into something completely different and we went from there.
The song was 'done' about a year ago, but didn't really feel finished until we revisited it and added the beautiful viola parts by Rachel.
The beginning is probably one of my favourite parts of the album.
