Songfacts®:

  • Karen O married noted film and music-video director Barnaby Clay in late 2011. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist penned this delicate vow of love and devotion and sang it to her husband at their marriage reception.
  • Guitarist and keyboardist Nick Zinner told Spin magazine this minimalist track features his favorite guitar moment on the entire Mosquito album. "We recorded the guitar for that the last day we were in El Paso," he said. "(Co-producer Dave) Sitek was really into building bonfires at that time, and the last night we all walked through the fire. Karen and I fu---ng walked through the fire together."

    He added: "That will forever be one of my strongest memories. After that, we did the last piece of music that we recorded in Texas. One take, one note."
  • Karen told NME: "This is our sealing the deal song. It's also a song about finding The One. I wrote it for my wedding. We didn't have vows at my wedding. I feel really awkward about saying stuff - so saying it in a song made perfect sense."
