This song was written by Toby Keith and his frequent collaborator Bobby Pinson. Keith wrote about the writing of this steamy love song on the press release for That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy: "We were on the back of my bus with the windows open. I had a show that night and was about 30 minutes from having to take my shower and get ready. The sun was going down; it was summertime. We were writing this, which is a really steamy song. Really sweaty, wet-sheet-sticking-to-your-skin kind of lyrics. I always say the best way to have a hit love song is to say bunch of stuff in the song you'd never really say to a girl. So I'm putting all those kinds of lyrics in and Bobby was running the computer typing in the lyrics. I came out with some big erotic line. He looked up at the sunset and it was starting to get dark in the bus. And he said, "Hey, hoss. After that one you're either going to have to turn some lights on in here or you're gonna have to light a candle."
