This song is a tribute to Johnny and June Cash and the enduring love they had for each other. Newfield adds that she desires to have a similar relationship with her lover. The former Trick Pony vocalist became close to the couple during the last five years of their lives.
In the song's music video, Newfield sings the chorus dressed in black, surrounded by flames. This is a reference to the Johnny Cash song "Ring Of Fire."
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
