  • Miranda Lambert wrote this ballad with regular collaborator Natalie Hemby and Foy Vance, an Irish singer-songwriter who is signed to Ed Sheeran's Gingerbread Man Records.
  • The song is a duet with Lambert's boyfriend Anderson East, who also co-wrote "Getaway Driver" and "Well-Rested" on The Weight of These Wings. East has also worked with Aaron Raitiere, who co-penned three songs on the album and Dave Cobb, who featured Lambert on his Southern Family compilation earlier in 2016.
  • Lambert and East sing of resisting love before finally giving into their feelings.

    Oh, how I remember well
    The sunset on September 12th
    I disappeared to get a drink
    You still kept your eyes on me

    Lambert seems to be telling her love story with East. She is specific with details, as she recalls through the song how she changed from guarded hesitation to total commitment to a relationship.
