Lifehouse lead singer Jason Wade wrote this. He wasn't trying to write this for radio, just himself and the fans.
Wade claims he wrote this in about 5-10 minutes. Said Wade: "I remember just sitting on the couch in the studio and I heard the melody in my head while I was doing another vocal track, which is really weird, it'll kinda give you a headache. I don't recommend it, but anyway, I went into the other room and picked up a guitar and it just kind of happened, so from that moment on I learned when you have to write a song, when the melody is in your head."
