Listeners are unable to agree if the couple that Young sings about here do stay together. "Some people call it a 'breakup song,'" he told Radio.com
. "I don't necessarily know if it's a 'breakup song.' The song never really says that they break up. There's this rough patch, this on-again/off-again thing, is it gonna work? Is it not? There's a bunch of stuff that needs to be said and needs to be discussed, and you need closure."
Young added that the closure isn't reached during the song. "The line says, 'To hell with the closure, save it for another time.' Right then, all those two people want to do is to be together. To hell with the consequences, we'll deal with it later."
