Songfacts®:

  • The Veronicas are Australian twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso. Lisa told The Herald Sun that it's "about an idiot that I dated overseas.'' Jess added: "When it comes down to it, that song's about cheating. A lot of people have been through it, like I've been through it, so it was very easy to relate to that situation. And I saw that whole situation go on, so it wasn't hard to write that song with her.''
