  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist Amber Coffman takes a solo turn on this sweet and yearning R&B song. Frontman and songwriter Dave Longstreth told Tonedeaf.com: "This is one of those stories, about something you might have experienced in a high school, such as being in love with a girl in a cool crowd, or maybe having a platonic crash on your friend. It's one of those songs. My high school experience wasn't like that, neither was Amber's. But you could relate to it. You don't know if it's from your own experiences, but it feels familiar enough that it might be, or maybe that's because it's cliché."
