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."
