  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Justin Furstenfeld wrote this song on the road inspired by being "with someone who treats me completely great." He told Playback: " There's nothing negative about it. It's all about beauty. It's really, really pretty and really, really happy, but it's going to be rocked out so crazy that people will kind of forget that it's a lovey lovey dovey song."

  • Shelby from Westerly, Rihave you ever noticed that on all of their albums they have a different sound?
  • Jessica from Bangor, MeI agree honestly, i think that the best upbeat and positive song by them is jumprope. seriously, the message the song is trying to give is to stay positive when life gets hard, and that`s why i love it. if you have not heard it you really need to listen to it :)
  • Landon from Winchester, OhExcellent. Something I love about Blue October is while they are an alternative rock band, they can fit music for any style that they choose: for example, for something aggressive you'd listen to "Dirt Room" or "Razorblade; for something slow and sad you'd consider "Black Orchid", "Amazing", or "My Never". And for something happy you'd check out "Calling You" and "Blue Skies". I really hope that this ends up being the next single for this great new album.
