The contrast between the vulnerability in the verses and the sassiness in the chorus are evidence of brilliant songwriting. The song, no matter how final the chorus makes it sound, really covers all of the emotions of the relationship. The chorus is how the woman wants to act, what she really wants to say to the guy who is breaking her heart. But the bridge adds a little more complication to that, with Alaina singing, "I wanted you and me, more than you could believe."
There is less emphasis on harmonies than I would have expected, especially because these three women have some of the best harmonies in Nashville. Nevertheless, this song is a must-listen.
