Songfacts®:

  • This synth-heavy song finds Matt Johnson proclaiming that he and Kim haven't changed since they've become successful. He explained to Artist Direct: "The inspiration was, we were writing that song and Kim was wearing a $5 hooded sweatshirt that she had gotten when we were touring in a Honda Civic sedan that my grandmother gave me back in 2006, and that she's still the same person that would wear that beat-up old hoodie now, even though things have gone well for us."
