Williams and White met in 2008, during a song-writing session or "writing camp" at a music studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

- LyricsYou only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Ooh, I don't love you but I always will
- LyricsShe was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said, "Don't mind me but what do you mean I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round?"
She said, "I am the one who will dance on the floor in the round"

- LyricsWhy are you so far from me?
In my arms is where you ought to be
How long will you make me wait?
I don't know how much more I can take
I've missed you
- LyricsIt's not your eyes
It's not what you say
It's not your laughter that gives you away
You're just lonely
You've been lonely, too long

I'm a dead man walking here
That's the least of all my fears
Ooh, underneath the water
