This was the first single from Oregon-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Mat Kearney's third album City of Black & White
. When we spoke with him in 2011
, he explained: "I had a love/hate relationship with that song. It was hard to play and I didn't know what I thought of it. I really appreciate that song. It's been interesting how that line, 'I guess we're all one phone call from our knees,' has really meant a significant thing to a lot of people. I didn't foresee that when I wrote it."
Kearney explained to Relevant magazine that this song is, "about dealing with the difficulties of a tough world, or maybe about the tough world we see out friends living in, or maybe it's something about the growing we are all a part of—longing for something whole and perfect—like we are just passing though this place."
