This Caribbean-tinged track evolved from a completely different song. Percussionist Alex Tanas explained to iHeartRadio
: "That song had a really long life. It started off as a song called 'Let You Down Easy,' and it was much different. It was more of a raw kind of thing. We were on the road with Maroon 5 in Europe. That's where it really took a turn. We were messing around with 'Let You Down Easy.' Then it became 'Lay You Down Easy.' We were struggling with the lyric. It just became more of a guy and girl-thing."
