Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Kacey Musgraves together with co-writers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne injecting a little innocence. "I just really love the idea that everyone is just here living this existence and just looking for love, looking for somebody to love," Musgraves said. "I mean, I feel like that's the human experience goal is that you just want somebody to love and somebody to love you in return."

    "The idea, sometimes when I see people or meet people or I'm looking at my friends or whatever, I see like the little kid in them and I'm just like, it's just easy for me to see each person as like the little boy or girl version of themselves," she continued. "In the song, we say 'we're all just little kids looking for somebody to love.'"
