Coming in at 6 in the morning and arguing was a reality when you have those type of relationships. I felt that in a way, the story did touch on certain things at the time. I didn't know how realistic it would become. I didn't know I would become divorced. I did know it spoke on the contrast between trying to balance this world of being married and having this responsibility that's like a marriage at the same time.

The song spoke to that place. Unfortunately, it did become a reality. Garrett said the song appeals to everyone, saying "Whether you're a female in love, male in love, it's a real record.

I felt that was the question everyone wanted to know: Was [his relationship] good or was it bad? Are you happy or you're not?
