Critical reception[edit]

Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song a positive review, praising the "introspective lyric". He also thought that the song was "miles away from the goofy come-on that was 'Eight Second Ride'."[1] Jim Malec of The 9513 gave the song a "thumbs down". His review praised Owen's vocals and the "well proportioned" production, but thought that the lyrics were "pure schlock".[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Mason Dixon and premiered in mid-2010.
