"How many people don't love love songs?" noted Stevens to Billboard magazine of this song. "I do, because of how they move you, how they take you places - whether it's missing someone, or that first time you met your significant other, the first dance at your wedding. When I heard it, it just took everything about love songs and how they work, and they put it into a song. It's the truth. It can make you cry, it can make you laugh."
