Monahan is singing about a guy who is attempting to convince a girl that their one-night-stand was not just a "drive by." The protagonist insists that he wants a lasting relationship. Speaking with Digital Spy
the Train frontman admitted that it is "an indirect song about meeting [his] wife." Monahan added: "I really did not expect I was going to fall in love with her that day. I said I'm never going to move to Washington where you live and I'm never going to have kids or get married, just so you know. So we've been married five years, we live in Washington and we have two children and that whole threat worked out great."
