  • This Jewel, Dallas Davidson, and Bobby Pinson-penned ballad is the lead single from Jewel's second country album, Sweet and Wild. The song was released to country radio in January 2010 and as a music download on February 9, 2010.
  • This served as the lead song for the romantic comedy movie Valentine's Day.
  • Regarding the song's lyrical content, the female narrator describes the feelings of being in love and concludes that she's just as happy staying in with lover and just being together as going out doing things.
  • Jewel explained on her website that the theme of Sweet and Wild, "is finding what's true about you and your life, and defending it and valuing it above all else."
  • Jewel plays a florist in the music video, directed by Peter Zavadil (who would also direct "Ten" and "Satisfied"). Another version incorporates clips from the Valentine's Day movie.
