  • Lyrics
  • The progressive house track features vocals from English singer BullySongs (real name Andrew Bullimore). The Chainsmokers duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, said of the tune: "For us, the song is all about people who set out with the best intentions but end up with the short end of the stick."

    "The wonderful BullySongs from the UK wrote the topline explained to us that this song is all about those times that say to your lady or moms, 'I am just running to the store, I'll be back in an hour, and end up back at 5 a.m...' and that idea really resonated with us as trouble makers with hearts of gold."

    "So this song is dedicated to all the screw ups, all the people out their who set out meaning well but somehow always end up messing it all up. Whether you're doing something illegal to make ends meet or botching a trust fall... But it's an idea that hits close to home for everyone at some point."
