Songfacts®:

  • The third single from Talking Dreams, the four Sierota siblings co-wrote this with their producer-composer father Jeffery David, who also manages his kids. "It's really fun and convenient to have our dad be our favorite collaborator," vocalist Sydney Sierota told The Examiner, "because it wasn't forced - it was just natural for all of us to write together."
  • The other co-writer was Detroit singer-songwriter Maureen "Mozella" McDonald, who also co-penned Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."
