This song was inspired by frontman Win Butler becoming a father, and also by an encounter with a gay teenager in Jamaica. He told The Sun: "Jamaica is a really hard place to be gay. And it made me envisage a conversation with him and his dad and gave me lines like 'I'll lose my heart if I turn away from you. Daddy don't turn away. I'm so scared.'"
