Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single taken from country singer James Otto's third studio album.
  • This song was co-written by Otto with Rivers Rutherford and Dave Berg, and co-produced by Otto and Grammy Award-winning record producer and session guitarist Paul Worley (Big & Rich, Dixie Chicks). Otto said in publicity materials: "It is just a pleasure to get to work with Paul Worley because he has been such a major part of my career. He signed me to Warner Bros. Records and now we get to work together as a producer team, which is awesome."
  • The song is about two people who like each other, but don't quite have the courage to communicate directly that they want to get together.
