This song finds Nelson singing about a "rough year" in his life. "I kind of overbooked myself, I guess, and like they say I hit the wall," he told Billboard magazine. "I had a shoulder problem and had to go to Germany for, like, an orthoscopic kind of surgery; they take out the blood and recharge it with something and put it back in and that fixes the problem, or at least makes it feel better. George Clooney turned me on to this guy, and while I was over there Kobe Bryant was there. It's a four or five day process, but it was worth it."
