  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from American rock/pop band Boys Like Girls' second album, Love Drunk.
  • This track features the Country-Pop artist Taylor Swift. Frontman Martin Johnson told MTV News that the band weren't concerned about alienating their fans with this track. He said: "I don't think we were worried about how our fans would react to that collaboration. I think Taylor's such a versatile artist, she can go from country to pop to rock to anywhere. We just saw her at Madison Square Garden, and there were so many kinds of fans there. We just thought she was the right voice and the right person for that song."
  • Swift does not appear in the song's music video, which was helmed by Irish music video, commercial, and feature film director Meiert Avis. In 1988 Avis won a Grammy Award for his work on U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name" promo.
  • This is the first hit single that Taylor Swift was involved in as a featured rather than main artist.
