Songfacts®:

  • This is about the complexities of distance and the worry that goes through one's mind when a lover is not around. DeGraw said: "You can't love and not get jealous. I think jealousy is a natural human emotion. The first verse of this song is about, when someone's not around, is the other person just looking to hold anybody? The second verse wonders whether someone who acts jealous can drive someone else into another's arms." (quote from Music Remedy)
