One of the initially songs that John Mayer wrote for The Search For Everything in spring 2014, this bluesy tune was motivated by a breakup. However, the singer"s mood had lifted by the time he finimelted composing and also recording the tune. "The end has a jam out," he told Rolling Stone. "If I"d had to finish this song a year back, it wouldn"t have this ending. This finishing is me coming earlier to it 2 years later on and also going, "I"ve moved on, so it gets a happy ending.""
Mayer defined that the song"s funky, uptempo sound stemmed from "a mistake in this bit groovebox we discovered, where we loaded the track in backwards, and that"s what offers it this upbeat, constantly refreshing rhythmic point."
