This is one of three tracks on Breakthrough co-written by Kara DioGuardi. The hitmaker/American Idol judge rented a house with Caillat and some friends on a beach in Hawaii and had their own "writing camp." DioGuardi inspired the young singer/songwriter in the process. Caillat told MTV News: "Honestly, she's one of the best songwriters I've ever known. She's just fearless and really taught me a lot about opening up and just saying what you need to say and just singing what you're feeling and people will dig it."
Caillat told Star Pulse that this is one of her favorite tracks on Breakthrough. She explained: "It's an emotional ballad. It's just the vocals, the piano, and this really cool bass that sounds like a heartbeat behind it. I wrote it from someone's perspective of getting their heart broken - saying it's not going to bury them and effect how they feel about love in the future."
Caillat further expanded on this song to MTV News: "It's actually from the guy's perspective whose heart I broke and him telling me this break-up is not going to bury him, it's just one little chapter in his life, and that he is going to be fearless in future relationships," she added. "It's an emotional ballad."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
