Singer Martin Johnson told MTV about the song. He said: "It's obviously not about being in love. It's about giving the F.U. to a relationship and a situation. It's fun. It's kind of celebrating — skipping your way out gracefully with a nice flip of the bird rather than crying your way home to mommy. It's cool, 'cause the song has a twist to it. It's about having been love-drunk and then saying goodbye." (Source Love Drunk Songfacts).
