Songfacts®:

  • The Sugarland duo were chasing down the theme of the whole album in a hotel room in Washington D.C, when the subject of love came up. The eventual record was loosely based around the topic of love. This ballad asks questions, about how you can possibly define love. Is it the face of a child? Kindness in the eyes of a stranger? Jennifer Nettles said on the band's website: "No way could you ever narrow it down."
  • Nettles' powerful voice starts off this song before Bush takes over in the second half. Bush recalled on the band's website: "When we were writing the back half, Jen said 'I want you to sing these words I wrote just for you.' I will always feel special singing those words."
