This was the last song Nathanson penned for his seventh studio album, Modern Love. He told American Songwriter: "I had the title kicking around for a long time. The rest of the song came quickly, right as we were finishing up the album. That never happens. The whole idea behind the song is that when you finally embrace real love, nothing else matters as much. Once you commit to someone other than yourself, you no longer have room to hold any of the other s--t you used to think was so important."
