Matthew Ramsey admitted to Hits Daily Double
that "Hotel Key" is "definitely a sex song." He explained: "It's about a one-night stand. But the truth is, it could just be one night where you get crazy, and it'll never be like that again. You got drunk together, laughed together, talked and talked together, and you were all there was in the world."
"Sure, you had sex together," Ramsey added, "and it was this amazing thing. But there's so much more to it than just the sex. It was everything. That line, 'We danced by the TV we never turned on' - that line is the whole song."
