Songfacts®:

  • Jason Wade, the singer songwriter guitarist from Lifehouse, said: "It's about my relationship with my girlfriend. There was a specific time when we felt the struggles of going through a relationship, of trying to communicate and going through all the things you go through to get to that point of real depth. I wrote the song during the most crucial time when we were either going to break up, or continue our relationship." >>

  • This was the second Lifehouse single. It didn't chart on the Hot 100, in part because their debut single "Hanging By a Moment" kept getting airplay, over-saturating the band.
