Blunt explained the song's meaning in an interview with PopEater: "I wrote it with Steve Robson, my producer, and Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic, and if you check out the credits as well, you'll see we wrote it with Bob Marley - I thought he was dead. We were in California, and it sounds like we're all around a campfire. What it basically was three guys who all pulled out our guitars and wrote a fun song that describes being in California - it kind of wrote itself. It's about hanging out with your friends and not wanting the night to end."
Confused by Blunt's reference to Bob Marley? The lyrics, "Just like the song on our radio set / We'll share the shelter of my single bed," are a reference to the Jamaican legend's hit tune "Is This Love
." Hence Marley's credit as a co-writer.
