Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Benji Madden described this to Spin magazine as "a classic Good Charlotte song." He added: "It's one of my favorite songs on the record. It's a metaphor for where our country is with the recession and the economy. We look back to the depression and its recovery. We're telling people, 'Hey, the storm's almost over.'"
  • Benji told Alternative Press: "This song is written about true love - a love each member of the band has with someone or something. It's about how the ups and downs show the strength of love. The dream is to make it last forever."
