  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track of Plain White T's third EP. Speaking on the Orlando radio station Mix 105.1, frontman Tom Higgenson explained the story behind the song's phone call that probably shouldn't have happened. "In the song it's me, Tom, but I think all the guys in the band have definitely lived through that one," he said, "as well as I'm sure everybody out there who's going to hear it too, unfortunately for them.
    "I'm recently single now, continued Higgenson. "I was dating a girl for like five years and coming out of a relationship like that and then trying to get back into the dating scene, it's rough. You get a little rusty. So I go out and have some drinks and don't end up really hitting it off with anybody, so then I turn to my phone when I'm lonely and dial up the exes, and that's just never a good idea."
