  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Lzzy Hale and guitarist Joe Hottinger wrote this song together at the Los Angeles apartment where the band were living whilst recording Into the Wild Life. Hottinger recalled to TeamRock: "The funny thing is at the end of the song I was struggling to figure out the vibe I wanted for the guitar solo. Jay [Joyce, producer] suggested putting the end of the song on loop, and I just kept playing until I figured out where I wanted to go with it."

    "What he didn't tell me was his plan all along was to fade out the band and just have a guitar solo at the end, which would then fade into 'Gonna Get Mine.' And I'm glad he didn't tell me because I would've freaked out and over thought it. He's no dummy, that Jay Joyce! He tricked me into a cool guitar moment that I'm proud of. It's real warts and all, just me being myself and playing along."
