Songfacts®:

  • Andy Grammer describes this song as "Imagine Dragons meets Kanye." A track from his second album, he wrote it with Ryan Met (Metzger) from the pop trio AJR.
  • In our interview with Grammer, he said that this was one of his most personal songs. "Sometimes you need somebody to fight for you when you're trying to stay together," he said. "Sometimes you need someone to hold you in. Especially for guys, when things get weird, they tend to run, and sometimes you need a girl that'll hold you through some of the tension."
