According to the Who You Are Songfacts, Cornish wrote this self-help ballad at the end of a lonely three-month trip to Los Angeles when she was 20. Having been shunted from studio to studio with various producers she was ready to pack it all in. She told The Independent December 10, 2010: "I'm very much someone that lives to be happy. It's not just about the parties and I know so-and-so – I'm not that girl. So I looked in the mirror and started to cry and said 'who am I?' Music is my therapy." .
