That song was written years ago when I was making the Born and Raised record. I never had my college years, so I fit my college years in between my fourth and my fifth record. What do I mean by "college years?" I would go sit at a bar and work my problems out. You forget that sometimes, you can work your problems out. At a bar. Alone. And I'd just be sitting there, drinking, working my problems out. And someone would come up and try to hurt my feelings just to do it. Cause at the time, I think there was something about me that was inviting people to try to hurt my feelings. I was a little cocky when I was younger. So people would see me at the bar, and they'd go "oh my fuckin'..." But they didn't know that I was hurting inside, and I would sit there, and I was just working that stuff out. And so that song is my going like this: [softly] "I don't know. I don't -- I don't know. I don't know." [Snarling voice] "So you're John Mayer." "Yeah." "Bet you think you're, like, cool." "Not right now."
And that whole song is me saying, like, [weakly] "please leave me alone. I just want to sit here in peace."
