The American Saturday Night
album is centered around the theme of living for the weekend. Paisley told The Tennessean
: "I think that's how my audience is living, and so 'American Saturday Night
' is that, and 'Water
' is that." He added that even a dark song like this one, "is that, which is about going out before you're ready and is the first left turn the album takes. It's dark but everyone has been there."
