  • Lyrics
  • This is the second single from American alternative rock band The Used's, fourth album, Artwork.
  • The song features a repeated lick from guitarist Quinn Allman. He explained to Ultimate-Guitar.com: "That's where my B and G strings are both tuned to A and I'm in dropped-D and it's almost like an open F chord. And I'm just arpeggiating up the strings, yeah, with a delay."
