The song's protagonist is a woman so in love that, should anything happen to her man she would follow him to the grave. "'Better Dig Two' is kind of like the ultimate commitment song," Kimberly explained to Radio.com
. "Anybody who has experienced true, committed and OK somewhat crazy love for someone else — you say, I would die if something ever happened to you! This particular character in our song just will not live life without her significant other."
"I think the card that our mother got for our dad for Valentine's Day probably sums it up best," she continued. "It's a picture of these two skeletons with giant red hearts, and it said 'til death do us part is for quitters.' And that's what 'Better Dig Two' is about — absolute lifetime commitment."
