Songfacts®:

  • The Benjy Davis Project is a Louisiana Rock band fronted by Davis, who is their lead singer and primary songwriter. Explaining this song, he told us: "I wrote that about my ex-fiancée about 6 months before we broke up. I told her it was about a band member who wasn’t working out." Regarding his songwriting process, Davis says: "I don’t really know. Songs are like burps or hiccups or something. I don’t really remember the process. It’s a blackout."
