Songfacts®:

  • This emotional ballad finds Jacoby Shaddix singing of his love for his wife Kelly. He told Artist Direct: "I always write about love in a twisted sense because of the relationship I have with my wife. It's painful because we're hard on each other sometimes. There's something about this lady. We love each other. Even when things get terrible in our relationship, we stick through it. We're there for each other."

    "We've been together for twenty years now," Shaddix added. "Obviously, you have your high and low points. I'll be in this one for a long time. The record went from being heavy to more melodic and alternative at that point. It was a cool turning point."
  • Other Papa Roach tracks where Shaddix sings of his turbulent but loving relationship with Kelly include "She Loves Me Not," "Leader of the Broken Hearts" and "Gravity."
