  • This is a track from California singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat's second album, Breakthrough.
  • This is one of three tracks on Breakthrough co-penned by Kara DioGuardi. The hitmaker/American Idol judge joined Caillat and her friend Jason Reeves for a three week "writing camp" in Hawaii to develop new material for the record. Caillat told Billboard magazine: "I was writing with Jason [Reeves] when I came home from tour, and he was hanging out with Kara in the studio. She ended up adding this amazing part to one of my songs and I got along with her really well, so I was like, 'Do you want to come to Hawaii with us? Let's make this a group thing.' I think opening your mind to new things is great, especially for me trying to grow as an artist."
