Lead singer Brad Arnold says he wrote this song with his (now-ex) wife as inspiration. He didn't write it for
her - there's a difference. He laughs when he talks about how wrong he was with his declaration of "when the last one falls, when all is said and done." But then, who can possibly predict the future?
"The song's just about being away from someone, or missing them," he clarifies. "And it really doesn't matter if you're here without them for all day or all month. It's just kind of about the lonely and missing of somebody, but people kind of take that sort of as a little bit of a sad song. And in a way, I kind of meant it as a happy song. And the reason being because it's talking about being here without you, but she's still with me in my dreams. 'And tonight, it's only you and me,' so the song was really just about that dream. And being in a state of peace, because you've got that person there with you in your sleep. And in that way I kind of meant for it to be a little bit of a happy song."
