Songfacts®:

  • Boys Like Girls frontman Martin Johnson teamed up with Sugarland's Kristian Bush and his brother, Brandon Bush as well as Atlanta-based producer Jon Traxx, to pen this emotive tune. "If you've ever been in between two choices and neither are good, or torn between the pull of two sides of your life, this song offers an understanding and a release," said Kristian. "I love working with amazing singers, and Martin, like my partner Jennifer, has a way of translating melodies and lyrics that move the heart."

    Kristian Bush also plays mandolin on the track.
