All-American Rejects lead singer Tyson Ritter, just 18 when he wrote this song, drew inspiration from a girl who broke his heart. Early in the song, we hear about how their secrets started coming out, a theme Ritter would revisit a few years later in the song "Dirty Little Secret
." What follows are the shots in the battlefield of love, with scattered thoughts of regret and wondering if they can move on. Things got better for Tyson once the album came out and the band became popular. He had a steady girlfriend for most of the '00s, so he had to refine his writing skills and make up various scenarios for many of the song on the band's next two albums.
