A number of songs on Little Honey were inspired by Williams' relationship with her husband Tom Overby. However the singer-songwriter explained to Rolling Stone that this love song wasn't one of them even though she sings it to him now. Said Williams: "I got that song out of that fling before I met Tom. I mean, a lot of the guys I've been with, if they're rock & roll musicians, there ends up being a little competition - they feel threatened. But rather than feeling threatened by my strength, Tom is inspired by it, because he's a real man. He gives me confidence, and confidence is everything."
