This song was written for Billie Joe Armstrong's girlfriend Adrienne Nesser (his punk rock girl). They met in Minnesota where she hails from, and fell in love. She is a bit older than him and he couldn't bear being on tour and missing her ("I dream about her, because she's 2,000 light years away"). Billie ended up marrying Adrienne and they had two boys.
