Lambert and Urban’s voice perfectly harmonized together. They have received positive reviews regarding their collaboration. However, the song’s production has been given a mixed review.
The narrator of the song remembers his past lover, and the memories they have shared together. Whenever he drives down the road they used to travel, it brings back memories of them together.

Back when that song was a song
I could sing along without thinkin bout you every time itcame on
Every beat, every line, every word, every time
When a road was a road
I could roll on through without wishin that empty seat wasyou
