Of 'St Patrick', James says; "This describes a period of my life that was absolutely shit, and then in the third verse, happiness arrives. I recorded a version on four track originally: vocal, guitar, concertina and mandolin. I wrote the lyric one night before I went to sleep and I woke up the next day and read it back, and usually when you do that it's awful, but I looked at this and thought, Fucking hell, that's superb!".
