Songfacts®:

  • Stone told VH1 that this song is about finding happiness through music: "When I was in school, I wanted to be a singer and everyone said I was crazy. They'd be like, 'Get your head out of those clouds and come do your math work.' So now I'm telling them, 'Girl, they won't believe it, I finally found some sweet through the bitters of life. All I need is a kiss from a melody." >>
