The song is a duet featuring the vocals of lead singer James Dean Bradfield and Nina Persson of the band The Cardigans, as well as additional vocals from the bands bass guitarist Nicky Wire . It was originally released on 23rd April 2007. According to the band they always had a duet in mind, seeing that the lyrics have a question reply style to them , According to lead singer Bradfield the title was the last line of a suicide note left by the friend of someone close to the group.

According to Nicky Wire the song is in part concerned with the disappearance of Richey Edwards... while I was writing those words addressed to him, on Your Love Alone…something touched me at my desk when I wrote “I could have shown you how to cry”

Like with all “Send Away the Tigers”-related material, the cover image is taken from the photography book Monika Monster Future First Woman on Mars by Valerie Phillips .

The song’s lyrics reference past classic British rock songs:
