Songfacts®:

  • This song finds a deadbeat boyfriend exchanging jabs with the girl with whom he is trying to reconcile. It guest stars Banhart's fiancée, Serbian photographer and artist Ana Kraš. Banhart admitted, "It's so hard for me to write a sincere love song. It's got to be about what a piece-of-s--t relationship we're in now, always, somehow. But there are some sincere things here obviously - they're all sincere, really, but you have to keep a sense of humor about it."
