Songfacts®:

  • Susanna Hoffs originally penned this song in 1997 with her friend Charlotte Caffey of the Go-Go's during a period when the Bangles were on hiatus. The pair also wrote together "Something That You Said," which ended up being the lead single from Doll Revolution. She told Spinner: "We were writing a lot in the '90s, and it was a song that was rediscovered when we were looking for material for the new record. Because it had been sitting away for so many years, I ended up showing it to [longtime songwriting partner] Vicki Peterson, and we ended up rewriting it and making it more 'Bangles-y.'"
