Talking about the track, Rhys says,
This song is pretty self-explanatory from the lyrics, but in a nutshell its about the bittersweetness of living... in the city. It takes so much energy to live in a city. It's expensive, relentless, busy, lonely at times, and tiring. Just getting on Londons tube at rush hour can make you want to sell all your possessions and move to the middle of nowhere. But at the same time, its exciting and unpredictable, spontaneous, full of opportunities and over-populated with interesting people. And the more you give, the more you get back. Every time I think about leaving, I remind myself of all the things this place has given me. And there's an unspoken promise from the city that is: it always has more to give.
