  • Lyrics
  • Currington told AOL the story behind Bonnie Swayze, the co-writer of this song. He explained: "This song was sent to me by a friend of mine out in L.A. He was like, 'Man, I heard this song the other day, and I'm sending it to you because I feel like it's the type of song you really sing well. I don't know if you'll have any interest in it or not, but I'm sending it your way.' I got it and listened to it and immediately loved the song. I didn't think too much else about it, but when it came time to record, I went back over that song again and played it for everybody who was involved, and everybody hands-down agreed that it was a great song. We did it, and the same day that I recorded it, I called up the guy who sent it to me and said 'Man, I need the writers on this song.' And he was like 'Man, my mom wrote that song!' 'Are you kidding me?' 'Yeah, my mom Bonnie Swayze wrote this song!' She'd never had a cut before, ever, but man, she wrote a great song. She wrote the lyrics and Tony the melody, and it was the first thing she'd ever done. To me, that was special."
