Toby Keith (from a press release): "The part I love most about this is where he says, 'You can do better than me, maybe.' He's telling her all these things he's done wrong. Then this line pops up in the song that says I know I messed all this up and I know you can do better than me. But he can't just leave it there. He's gotta say, 'Maybe.' You might could, but it's too late. We'll never know, you already love me. Deal with it."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
