Connolly recalled the writing of the song in an interview with Noisecreep
: "I remember giving Kara the song title and she said, 'I like that! I don't I've heard of a song with that title.' So then I just wrote the chords right there on the spot. From there, she started humming the vocal melody and wrote the lyrics off of that. I took it home and finished the rest. The next day I show up with the finished song and she says, 'That's a hit.' Once I sent Roadrunner Records the demo, they loved it."
