Album: Mean Everything to NothingReleased: 2009
In an interview with Denver Westworld
, Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra explained: "The way that song is written is, in the first half I'm basically just describing touring and kind of my relationship with God and my wife. And the end is about this dream I had about us being in the van and getting sideswiped and hit by a huge truck. I dreamed my wife was pregnant at the time and I lost her. But this life was inside her, and in some weird way I was able to celebrate that there was some new life coming with one ending."
This song was featured heavily on an episode of Gossip Girl (season 2, episode 3 "The Dark Night"). Keyboardist Christopher Freeman told Billboard magazine that featuring on the teen drama was a momentous occasion for the band. He explained: "The thing is, we watch everything. We watch so much television it's ridiculous. I was completely caught up in Gossip Girl when it came out. So to have our song played in the most epic break-up scene to date was awesome. We were all jumping up and down."
