The lyrics suggest that Selena suffers from sleeping issues. She sings, "But all my friends, they don't know what it's like, what it's like/ They don't understand why I can't sleep through the night/ And I thought that I could take something to fix it/ Damn, I wish it, I wish it was that simple."

The next chorus has the two pop stars singing, "I got all these thoughts, running through my mind/ All the damn time and I can't seem to shut it off/ I think I'm doing fine most of the time/ I think that I'm alright, but I can't seem to shut it off."
