TobyMac explained in publicity materials: "The heart of the song was simply a prayer that unravels in conversational terms, honest and vulnerable. I describe my morning 'The dream is fading now I'm staring at the door.'" God it's you and me here alone, but I'm about to go face this day and all that comes with it. It's so easy for all of us to forget what matters to us in the midst of the chaos the world throws at us. This song is about the moment we remember… 'I was made to love and be loved by you.'"
