• This song was was inspired by a poignant parenting moment at home. "My wife and I were sitting on the couch one day and my son came in, and he was in a really frustrated mood," Seger explained to Yahoo! Music. "He wanted to vent, and all we did was sit there and listen -- didn't say a thing. And then after he left, what was really strange, was that we'd been discussing exactly that before he came in. That sometimes it's a better thing to listen."

    "As a parent you want to give advice all the time," he added. "Sometimes it's really best to just listen."
