  • Iowa-raised singer/songwriter Jason Reeves has been collaborating with Colbie Caillat ever since he met her the day he arrived in Los Angeles. The pair duet on this song of devotion from his 2011 Lovesick album and she told AOL Music it is her favorite of all his tunes. The Bubbly singer explained: "The realness in this song opened my eyes with a wake-up call, a beautiful wake-up call. Every person has felt this way before, and should always remember to live honestly. This song even helped inspire my album title 'All Of You.'"
  • The video was directed by Nathanael Matanik and shot in the scenic hills of Malibu and Santa Barbara. "This is the first music video Colbie and I have shot together after all these years of writing and singing together and I'm very excited about that! We went back to the places along the California coast where we wrote our first songs and used to hang out when I had just moved there from Iowa," Reeves told AOL Music. "This song has that perfect tension that makes a duet work and I love that the video is in a way a confrontation. She is my lost-girl sister and there will never be somebody with a voice quite like hers again."
