In Canada, the song reached number two on the RPM Top Singles chart, behind "Leave Virginia Alone" by Rod Stewart, becoming their highest-charting single until "The World I Know" reached the top spot in March 1996.
We were going through a tough time with our first manager, and I just felt like at the time, a lot of stuff happened really quickly. You've got to remember, we had a hit song before we had a label or even a true band. So, that relationship started to deteriorate. And while we were in the studio, it came pretty natural. I just wanted to talk about how I felt I was being used and whatever I did was not good enough ever.
