Paisley wrote this with songwriters Chris DuBois and Ashley Gorley. Paisley, told USA Today March 5, 2009: "We had a target, and the target was our significant others." He added that it is, "a heartfelt love song — the kind I haven't done, really." (Source Then Songfacts).
I remember, trying not to stare, the night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
And three weeks later, in the front porch light
Taking forty-five minutes to kiss goodnight
