Songfacts®:

  • This slow, sauntering piano-led ballad is a plaintive cry for help, which finds the protagonist in a lot of pain, contemplating the possibility that he will be gone by morning.
  • The song features backup vocals courtesy of Norah Jones and Adam's wife Mandy Moore. This is one of three tracks on Ashes & Fire featuring a contribution from Norah Jones. Adams told The Sun: "She's like my kid sister. We talk all the time. I told her I was making a record and she goes, 'Well cool. I'll play piano.' It was that simple."

    Adams and Jones previously collaborated on "Dear John," a track from Adams' 2005 album, Jacksonville City Nights.
