Lambert penned this ballad about a love gone bad herself. She explained in publicity materials her inspiration for this song: "I was about to go record right after Valentine's Day and I had gotten roses and they were so pretty, but I had to throw them out, because they get really nasty. I figured by the time I get back, they'll be dead, so I just threw them in the yard. I was packing my bags and I thought, man, that's sad. Those beautiful flowers are just wasted. I also leave my Christmas lights up all the time, because… I don't know, why not? And I looked out there and they were kind of hanging off the porch like they needed to be redone I wrote that song in 20 minutes and I'm very proud of it lyrically. The longer you go not writing by yourself, the harder it gets. So I always try to keep writing by myself as much as I can."
