The song's title may sound melancholy, however, the track's chord progression is quite the opposite. Backed by peppy, uplifting keyboard chords, the 'Suddenly I see' songstress sings about accepting that a relationship has run its course, with the lovers parting ways: "So choose my weapon and choose my way / It's easy saying nothing when there's nothing to say / Thinking about it everyday, starting to notice you're fading away."
Tunstall performed an acoustic rendition of the track July 13 at the Hiro Ballroom in Manhattan, using live looping to to get the layering and harmonizing effects in the chorus. You can check it out here.
