Songfacts®:

  • This guitar-led anthem finds Caleb Followill telling the story of a fiery waitress and her roguish lover driving from Texas to Hollywood ("all the way from Waco to WE-HO"). He told Q magazine: "The words to that are like a classic Hollywood story. A smalltown kid goes to Los Angeles to chase the lights and find what's out there."
  • This was released as the lead single of Kings Of Leon's Walls album. Band superstition decrees all their albums contain five syllables so the record's official title is "We Are Like Love Songs."
