The Born and Raised Songfacts says that Mayer's parents concluded an uncontested divorce on May 27, 2009, and he addresses that heartbreak on this song when he sings: "I still got faith. I call on both of my brothers. I got a mom, I got a dad. But they do not have each other."

I can't retrace how I got here
I cheat and lie to check my fates
It's slightly harder than last year
