Songfacts®:

  • Singer and lyricist Hayley Williams told Alternative Press about this track: "Josh [Farro, guitar] and I wrote this a week before we left the studio. It's the first song we ever wrote together from start to finish. He had this guitar line that really reminded me of some old [1990s emo band] Get Up Kids song or something. It didn't really sound like anything else we'd written before. It's a simple song. It feels good. And that's pretty much all there is to it."
