The song's female protagonist describes in the song how she is constantly reminded of her former love interest as she goes through her daily routine. Hillary Scott told The Boot
her lyrics are based on an actual experience. She explained: "When I wrote it, I was barely a month out of a really, really bad break-up. It's very autobiographical ... one of the most personal songs that I've ever written. It was personal when I wrote it, but now that it's actually out there, it takes it to another level. I'm sure he [my ex] has heard it, but that's OK because the song's about 'everyday without you, I'm a little bit stronger,' which is true. So, he can hear that. That's OK."
