Songfacts®:

  • This was released in October 2004 as the leadoff single from Lee Ann Womack's album There's More Where That Came From. The song was a Top 10 hit on both the US and Canadian Country charts and also peaked at #66 on the Hot 100.
  • The ballad finds the narrator about to have a night of passion with a man aware of the consequences of how she'll feel when she wakes up in the morning. Womack told The Mirror: "This is the kind of stuff I grew up listening to. How true is this song? Even if you haven't been in that situation, we all know somebody who has. It's just honest."
  • The song was written by Odie Blackmon. "I wrote that one by myself," he told Roughstock. "That was a true story. It was something I was going through at the time. I was actually living in a house that was a duplex next door to the girl I wrote the song about."

    "It has become a sticky situation," Blackmon added. "That song poured out in 30 minutes. One morning, I was just down about the whole deal, and I didn't have a co-write, but I had a guitar. It just kind of poured out. I sat there looking at it on the page while playing my cassette back, going man ... I think this is really, really good."
  • The song won the prize for Best Single at the 2005 Country Music Awards.
