Writing and inspiration[edit]

The song is about looking back and wanting to relive your past. He said in an interview, that the underlying message of the song is positive in that "Even if things don’t work out and I can’t change them, I’m still glad it happened. And the worst case scenario is that you learn a lesson.”[1] The song is based on Chris' ex-girlfriend, who broke up with him when his band, The White Tie Affair, started to take off.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

The song has received very positive reviews from music critics. It was named on iTunes as one of the "Best Songs of 2012". MTV has said that, “critics are going so far as to call him the male Katy Perry, a compliment if we ever heard one. Actually, we totally agree!” and called him a "one man dance party".[3]
