Anderson explained this song to StarShine Magazine
: "I was interested in someone at that point so of course I was trying to figure it out… but you know, it was most just a general song. I was trying to write a very simple love song and not really trying to be clever or find a cool angle. I think it definitely reflects what I was thinking at the time, which was that I needed something that I could sing in front of a room full of girls."
He added that the band makes it a point to sing about love, a subject that they feel everyone understands. "There's a bad side and a good side [to love] and I think that everyone experiences that. We're just trying to write songs that people can relate to and connect to in some way or another."
