This is the title track from American singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw's fourth studio album. The song finds DeGraw fantasizing about another guy's girl. He told Billboard magazine many of the songs on the album "ride the vulnerability spot." The singer had to balance up writing about emotion and hoping to get "a reaction from the female listener" without chasing the men away. "There is always that risk," he noted, "and trying to get that correct is a fine line. Some people will hate you for sounding vulnerable at all, so you can't win 'em all, right? You have to accept that stuff... The things that make writing challenging are things that make it the most enjoyable."
The song's music video was directed by Lenny Bass and shot in Brooklyn. It features Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Genevieve Morton, who feeling unappreciated by her less than enthusiastic boyfriend, grabs DeGraw on her way out. We made a pretty steamy video and, yeah, it looks really great," DeGraw told Billboard magazine. "It was rock 'n' roll."
