From His Own Words–Scott’s Inspiration
The song was produced and recorded in my bedroom by me. I wrote the song about a girl that lived behind The Brite Spot Diner who let me sleep over when I was kind of homeless and new to LA. I would walk her dogs, and she told me to write the song about her and her 2 dogs. She was beautiful, like a moviestar. – Scott Mellis
