  • Lyrics
  • Urban told Roughstock that he has does a lot of collaborating, but also a lot of writing on his own and he wrote this song very quickly himself. He added: "My wife was going to the airport and I found myself calling within a very short time frame, she had just left. Because I was in the zone of writing, I wrote about that situation. It took no time to write, and I put it aside, but this song kept coming back to me."
