Gossin told The Boot
how the song came about. "I had this guitar riff that I had written for the first record," he explained, "but I wrote it late. We had finished up the record already, so the producer who I showed was like, 'Save it for the next record.' I brought it back to the table and we wrote this song about being stuck in a moment with a significant other, and you're oblivious to everything else that is going on around you."
