This epic soulful ballad is the fifth single from American rock band Shinedown's third studio album, Sound of Madness.
Frontman Brent Smith explained on the radio interview program Rockline that while the band were writing the new album, he had a dream about a mother whose son passes away. He wrote the song about the mom dealing with the death of her child and trying to move on.
