When country group Parmalee heard the song, they immediately thought it was right up their alley. "I think it's so relatable, through all aspects," they told The Boot
. "You know, who hasn't gone through a bad breakup and had your buddy help you out? And I think when we heard it, my first thought was, 'That's a country song. That's a Parmalee song right there.'"
The band decided to cover it for a single
. Before recording the tune they needed to ask Lewis if it was OK to make some lyrics more "country." He'd sung, "I know you love her but it's over, mate." They changed it to, "I know you love her, man, but it's too late." Lewis agreed to the changes.
