  • Lyrics
  • Menzingers co-vocalist Greg Barnett told Kerrang this song started off with a melody idea that he had, which the rest of the band loved. It originally had completely different lyrics, but he couldn't get the story right.

    It was when Barnett started thinking about relationships that everything clicked. "When you move into your first apartment with your partner, and how exciting that all is – I wanted to write a song about that, and a long-distance relationship," he explained. "I've had a lot of examples in my life and my friends' lives that I based it on, so it all just fell into place."
