Songfacts®:

  • Speakin' truthfully, I'm not sure why we keep fightin'
    You just go blame the bad timin'
    Admit it to me
    Speakin' truthfully, I love you more than you love me


    Joe Jonas explained to Billboard magazine the song is "about an honest conversation with yourself that maybe you don't give somebody what they needed and maybe that there's a place that you need to just kind of take a step back and say, 'Okay, maybe I loved them more than they loved me and life goes on.'"
