  • Benji Madden told Alternative Press: "Joel [Madden, vocals] and I wrote this one about his son and daughter and our niece. Having families and kids has given our lives new perspectives. This one feels like a more grown-up song that could not have been on our self-titled album. I learned to play guitar by listening to Oasis records, and this is straight out of the Noel Gallagher handbook."
