“I went for a date with a girl from Phoenix; Arizona, and she told me to write a song about her. So, I sat down as a joke to write something and then this song came out and everyone loved it. Which is really annoying because she ended it after the 5th date and now, I have to keep playing this song at all our shows” – James
