Songfacts®:

  • This energy-packed anthem by the three Burnham brothers was produced by Ryan Tedder, whose other credits include Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love," Beyoncé's "Halo" and his own band OneRepublic's "Secrets."
  • The oldest Burnham, Alex, told MTV News about the song: "It's really fun. It's about your girlfriend [breaking up with] you and then all of a sudden she wants you back. And you're like, 'No, you just dumped me! I'm still mad at you. So, catch me if you can.' It's that kind of vibe and it's all fun and stuff, but it translates really well to a song."
