“I had this chorus for about 10 years. I wrote it with Danny Kortchmar, who’s been a part of so many amazing records. It was strange: I could never figure out what to do with the chorus – it was always around. Seventeen variations of this song later, I decided to do it as a ballad… and I remembered that chorus.
“That’s when it all clicked, and from that point on, the song took care of itself. I wish I could bottle that feeling, that moment of inspiration, because I’d use it every day.
“Lyrically, I think the song is about closure and my relationship with my ex-girlfriend. It was a tumultuous love/hate thing, but yet you still love her – to death. Holding on to some of that and having it follow you around – it’s in there.”
