This is Joey Landreth's favorite tune on his first solo record. "It's a pretty personal song," he said in a 2017 Songfacts interview
. "It draws a parallel between tumultuous love and addiction. It tends to be whatever resonates the most with the listener. So some people say, 'Man, it really reminds me of this relationship.' Some people go, 'Yeah, it reminds me of when I got sober.' It's actually a mix of the two for me. I've been sober two-and-a-half years now. The story of the song borrows from both my experiences of getting sober and being in a relationship. It's the marriage of those two things."
