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

In this song, Folds sings about knowing that the girl he's with is the perfect girl for him, that they are soul mates. (thanks, emily - Olney, IL)
This song was originally written for the 2000 movie Loser, directed by Amy Heckerling. It was deleted from the movie along with the scene it was written for, making its way that year onto the album Rockin the Suburbs.
Aussie fans could also hear this song in a TV advertisement for RSPCA Australia. (thanks, Emma - Melbourne, Australia, for above 2)
