According to the article, Ritter said the song is about a girl, but that it pertains to present-day happiness and isn't a lament over yesterday. "We wrote it on the road after I met a beautiful girl," Ritter said. "It's about being in love and stuff like that. It's about passionate love, on a deeper level than I used to write about before.'" >>

  • Hannah from Gustavus, OhSounds to me like this song is about two people who've had feelings for each other for a long time, but for some reason couldn't act on them until now. They only have one chance to act on it, though ("Don't waste now, precious time"), so they go all the way.
