Album: Pain Killer (2014)
Play Video


  • Written by busbee, Natalie Hemby and Shane McAnally, the song finds Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman singing of a drama-filled relationship in which they're constantly fixing something that was never broken.

    You say it's over with a middle finger
    But then you're calling before I turn off my ringer
    And I answer 'cause I love to hear 'you're sorry' for the 400th time

    Whilst this was busbee's only credit on Pain Killer, Natalie Hemby contributed to three other tracks, "Good People", "Turn the Lights On" and "Things You Don't Think About," the latter being another co-write with Shane McAnally.
