On this track Lifehouse vocalist and principal songwriter Jason Wade is assisted in his writing duties by Chris Daughtry and Richard Marx. Wade explained to Billboard magazine: "I just felt it was necessary to get a different vantage point. I've been writing songs since I was 15, and usually I use my own personal experiences and life situations as kind of a canvas, and there are certain times where there's not a lot of turbulence in your life. I felt like I needed to get inspiration elsewhere."
Chris Daughtry also sings backing vocals on this track.
Wade expanded on this collaboration with Chris Daughtry, whom he met and became friends with on the road: "I haven't done much co-writing in the past and I'm a bit leery of it," he admitted. "You can end up with a song that is not good and just wish you had that day of your life back (laughs) however, I went over to Chris's place in LA and within an hour we had 'Had Enough.'"
