Why We Call Each Other

Album: Current Mood (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Dustin Lynch, with Lee Miller and Ross Copperman, this provocative R&B song tells the steamy story of a guy and girl who only hear from each other late at night. The lyrics reflect the singer's situation as a bachelor living the high life out on the road.

    "This is about the go-to person you send the 'are you up?' text at 1 a.m.," Lynch told Rolling Stone Country. "A lot of folks can relate to that."
