Songfacts®:

  • Singer Joe Jonas told the Australian radio show The Hot Hits that the trio's fans "mean the world" to them and this song "is giving back to them." He added: "After two years of their loyalty and dedication we felt there was no more personal way to give back than to share our influences, from the Bee Gee's to Neil Diamond."
  • When fans first got to hear this song, the networks were buzzing about whether it addresses Joe Jonas' relationship with Taylor Swift. The line "And all the tears on her guitar/ I'm not bitter," which name-checks Taylor's song "Teardrops On My Guitar" appears to prove to many that it does. Joe refused to confirm who the song is about to MTV News. He said: "We went through a lot in the past year and a half, all of us. And you're just going to have to get the record and figure it out for yourself."
  • The brothers told MTV News that they're comfortable with fans dissecting their love lives while listening to the songs. Nick added: "I think even the songs that talk about previous relationships really are pointed towards the fans in the end. They're the best and they're the reason we're doing what we're doing."
  • Taylor Swift addressed her relationship with Joe on the song "Forever & Always.."
