Evan and I wrote this song sitting on a little patch of grass near Beverly Hills – laughing and relating on the nuances of relationships. We realized there’s always going to be little things about your partner that could be a point of conflict, but if you like them enough, there’s always a way to see the best or the “good” in that person. The whole thing felt so natural and the song came together so quickly. I really think the mood of us sitting on the grass in the sun, seeped into the recording and that’s part of what makes it so sweet and light.
