Originally written for the soundtrack of the film City of Angels , the song was later included on the band's sixth album, Dizzy Up the Girl. The song's time signature alternates between 4 4 and 6 8 , and features an unusual guitar tuning in which all of the strings are tuned to D, with the exception of the lowest string which is a B, lending the guitar a chorus -like effect.

Think of it as giving him a prompt, and now he gets to give his thoughts. It's unfair to assume that she feels that way without asking her.
