Chipmunk is basically giving his female fans something back with this track, he said: “to give something back for all the love they’ve given me.” Chipmunk is admitting that he’s messed up again by hurting his lover. ‘I’m a walking disaster, Don’t want to hurt to you that’s why you got to go’ The hurt is gong to happen again and again so he doesn’t expect his lover to stay. The director of the music video said in an interview with Promo News: “Chipmunk was keen to have a video with fire and wanted to keep it as real as possible, so we took him to stage A at Shepperton and filmed him in a real ring of fire.”
