  • Chris Daughtry was inspired to write this song after returning from a long overdue break in Italy with his wife Deanna. He told The Hollywood Reporter: "It was the first time we had gone on a real vacation since we got married. It was the first time ever we went anywhere that it was just me and her, no kids, and it was Italy. She had always wanted to go there and we finally made it happen. It was one of those highs you never wanted to come down from. That was essentially our honeymoon."
