Songfacts®:

  • This song helped Halestorm fund their traveling to gigs in their early days. Lzzy Hale recalled to Kerrang!: "I'm going to go back to the tip jar days, when we used to play bars and have a tip jar that would help pay for our gas. This was a ballad, very cheesy, which was written when I was about 17 years old and listening to a lot of Journey. Whenever we played the song, people would come up and put money in the tip jar – we had a good $250 in there!"
