  • Lyrics
  • This song is about a couple who both carrying lots of baggage: she's had her heart broken and has a hard time committing to a relationship; he puts up walls, making it very hard to get through to him. They might just make it, but it's going to take a lot of work.
  • Hutchinson had to step outside of himself to write this song, as he had been in a stable marriage for years. "I don't necessarily believe you have to be miserable to make good music," he told Songfacts. "But I spent a lot of time thinking about other people and thinking about other people's lives."
