This potential wedding song finds DeGraw promising his girl everlasting love, and when she needs someone he'll always be there fighting for her. It is one of three tracks on Sweeter
produced by Butch Walker, who has also worked with the likes of Bowling For Soup (Girl All The Bad Boys Want
), Pink (Mean
) and Weezer (The Girl Got Hot
). DeGraw said of Walker's contribution to the album in an interview with Billboard
magazine: "He was able to listen to the songs and come in with the right arrangements, bring in the right players for the songs and the right gear for the performances.You don't always have a magic moment in the studio," he continued, "but you want those moments to happen. I remember when we were tracking 'Soldier,' in the second verse I was digging in hard, the groove was so good and everyone was jelling. I heard Butch go, 'Woo!'-a primal scream that said, 'This feels so good.' You can't fake that. We kept it because you can't re-create the performance that makes you do that."
