  • Lyrics
  • This song about being betrayed by a girlfriend concerns Ryan Adams' first love. "It is about we that are left home (Jacksonville, North Carolina) for good, to go and get away from my parents and go be a musician," he told The Sun.

    "I knew that this girl that I loved so much was seeing my former best friend and I had to go," he continued. "I don't think they knew I saw them together although she is a friend of mine now."
  • Johnny Depp was a guest guitarist on the song. He also supplied guitar and backing vocals to another Ryan Adams track "Feels Like Fire."
