  • This song is a duet with James Morrison. Mraz told told The Sun December 19, 2008 why he hooked up with the English singer-songwriter: "James was hanging around the studio while we worked and he knew we needed a vocalist on details, so it was as simple as asking and him. He was very gracious with his time and talent."
