Songfacts®:

  • East Coast crooner PnB Rock sings here about the vulnerability of love as he admits to wanting a particular girl all to himself. He recalled the story behind the song to Genius:

    "I was in the studio with this chick. We was in there vibing. It was a couple of people in the studio, actually. We was in there vibing, he put the beat on, and it was just one of those times where the beat spoke to me. I was with the girl, so it was like, I was feeling selfish about her at the time, you feel me?

    This particular girl that I was talking about the song - it's crazy. It was a short-lived moment. It was the girl that I was dealing with at the time. That's really how I felt about her, though. I was selfish. I wanted her all to myself. But it was just short-lived."
