Banners wrote this song with Grant Michaels and Samuel Hollander, who have teamed on tracks by Goo Goo Dolls ("Indestructible") and Fitz And The Tantrums ("Roll Up"). In a Songfacts interview with Hollander
, he said: "It's an interesting song because it came out with so little fanfare and it was sort of thrown against the wall and it disappeared. But there's an emotional resonance to it, and I think a lot of it has to do with Michael - Banners' - his voice. There's a longing in his voice when he sings. There are moments where I get that strange goosebump, sort of visceral response, even now when I listen to it. And it's all in his vocal to me. I think it's the emotion, because I really believed everything about him when he was singing it. I really truly connected with it. A strummy, uptempo record like that can do its thing, but there's something just so innately cool in his voice when he hits that chorus."
