Scotty Emerick wrote this song as a double-entendre about a relationship breaking up. "The guy can't go anywhere without somebody bringing her up in conversation," he says, "and physically he can't take her anywhere anymore. So we get the guy going out and getting something to eat, and just everywhere he goes, he's reminded of her." And he explains how the writing of that song progressed: "We started that chorus, 'Struck a nerve, hit a vein, I think from all the tears I cry and this broken-hearted pain, I wouldn't have to carry you around, but no matter where I go somebody wants to know where you've been, are you coming back again, I swear I can't take you anywhere.' It's actually a sad song with a cool R&B count beat to it."
