Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This pop-rock tune is described by the brothers' record label as a guitar-driven dance ditty.
The song was the lead single from Jonas Brothers' fourth studio album Lines, Vines & Trying Times. It was debuted on Radio Disney on May 7, 2009.
This was helmed by regular Jonas Brothers producer John Fields. Prior to working with the three siblings, Fields was best known for producing Switchfoot's The Beautiful Letdownalbum.
Lyrically the subject matter is irrational paranoia in a loving relationship.
The video was directed by the Malloys, who previously worked with the boys on their "Burning Up" promo.
The brothers wrote this with English singer-songwriter Cathy Dennis ("I Kissed a Girl," "Can't Get You Out of my Head" and "Toxic"). The Jonases explained to the Australian radio show The Hot Hits: "We had the amazing opportunity of writing with two great talents, Cathy Dennis and our producer John Fields. We loved the outcome so much we decided to put it on our record."
Nick Jonas explained to Rolling Stone that album title "is a bit of poetry we came up with on the set" for their Disney TV series JONAS. He then went on to explain its meaning: "Lines are something that someone feeds you, whether it's good or bad. Vines are the things that get in the way of the path that you're on, and trying times - well, obviously we're younger guys, but we're aware of what's going on in the world and we're trying to bring some light to it."
Having topped the Billboard album chart with A Little Bit Longer in August 2008, the Jonas Brothers became the first group to send two sets to the summit within a year for four years when Lines, Vines and Trying Times reached #1 in July 2009. The previous act to achieve this feat was System of a Down, who ruled with Mesmerize and Hypnotize six months apart in 2005.
This was the first Jonas Brothers song to chart on the Hot Dance Club Songs tally, courtesy of uptempo remixes from the likes of Soul Seekerz and Stonebridge.

Gloom led to inspiration for Danny's hit song. He got a record deal and an Elvis cover out of it, but success was fleeting.
