Singer-guitarist Matt Thomas explained to The Boot
how the song come to the band. "Right before we finished recording, I got a copy of this from a friend of mine," he recalled. "I listened to the song three times in a row, and usually that tells you that there's something in that song right there. And when I heard the lyrics and the melody line, I was like, 'Man, this is perfect.' The feel of it was what we needed on the record. It's just one of those songs that I just had to listen to over and over again, and those are the ones you grab up, if you get the opportunity to do it."
"Our good friend Shane Minor and Adam Craig and Trent Tomlinson wrote it, and once we got in the studio and we played it and I sang on it, then everybody said, 'Okay, this is it,'" he continued. "This song was one of those dark horses, I guess you'd call it, that made the record in the last minute."
