Songfacts®:

  • The Jonas Brothers explained to the Australian radio program The Hot Hits that this song, "is an homage to some of our favorite contemporary bands: U2, Kings Of Leon and Muse." The trio added that they thought, "it deals with the biggest mistake we all make which is dwelling on the past instead of just making strides towards the future. All too often we get stuck spinning our wheels trying to fix things without ever realizing how much life is passing us by, because we've forgotten how much there is to just look forward to."
