Chrissy has shared her thoughts about it. “It’s not just a song to me. It’s so personal for me. I don’t really listen to it like a song. I listen to it as like ‘oh, that’s my husband he’s singing about us.’ It definitely resonates with a lot of people and a lot of people love it and get it. I think it’s a very honest love song. A lot of them are flowers and butterflies and I think ours is kind of more realistic and he’s showing obviously my smart mouth, my curves and edges.”
