Songfacts®:

  • Adam Levine sings on this electro-pop song about crossing the line from friends to lovers.

    Hazel eyes, I was so color blind
    We were just wasting time
    For my whole life we never crossed the line
    Only friends in my mind
    But now I realize
    It was always you


    Fans speculated that Levine's lyrics concern his bride, Behati Prinsloo, whom he married during a beach-side ceremony in Mexico on July 19, 2014.
  • The song was produced by The Monsters and the Strangerz production and songwriting team whose other credits include "Turn Around (5,4,3,2,1)" by Flo Rida and "Swagger Jagger" by Cher Lloyd.
  • The upbeat ballad was originally written by Los Angeles songwriter Jason Evigan for his wife, Victoria, who is a hair and makeup artist.
