Songfacts®:

  • Over shuffling drums and languid guitars, this song finds Caleb Followill pleading with his lover for forgiveness. It is one of a number of tracks on Mechanical Bull where Followill is laying himself on the line and using music as an agent of healing. "Really, I was writing to myself, like a journal," he told The Daily Telegraph, "saying stuff I felt I needed to say, and needed them to hear."
