Both Mike Eli and Jon Jones each ended up marrying a woman like the one in the song. "My wife and I are married 14 years now," Jones told Radio.com
in a March 2015 interview. "We dated through college, and then we took a break. Then there was a point before we got back together that we went through a 'Your Place Or Mine' kind of thing, where maybe we were getting back together because it was familiar. Even though it is a really sad song, maybe it does have a happy ending."
He added: "There's something about the lyrics in that song, it's a sentiment. Some of those feelings, especially of loss and heartbreak and the uncertainty after being in a relationship, those feelings are so powerful that it's really easy to go back there, even if it's years ago and it's not your current situation. It's that power of music, how a song can take you back somewhere."
