Nathanson wrote on his website that, "in a lot of ways, the album is about learning what a relationship really can be."

In September 2008 this debuted at #89 on the Hot 100 making it the first chart entry for the Vanguard label since Alisha's "Baby Talk" in February 1986. It was also the first Hot 100 chart entry for the San Francisco singer/songwriter.
Sugarland recorded a cover of this for their Love on the Inside-Deluxe Fan Edition album.
Nathanson co-wrote the songs on Some Mad Hope with his producer Mark Weinberg (Ari Hest, O.A.R.).
