The band have a number of songs that they wrote together in their early days, which even though they quite fond of, they were unable to complete. This was one of them, but fortunately they were eventually able to salvage it: Flowers recalled to the American Songwriter magazine: "We had the verse forever, and we knew in our hearts that it was good. But we wondered if we'd ever get past that verse. And then the day came where (bassist) Mark (Stoermer) started playing the chorus. And it could have been anybody. Because we're able to work together like that it helps us to avoid being stuck a lot of the time."
