  • Lyrics
  • Frontman Brad Arnold explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "The song talks about realizing that you've done wrong and getting back to where you should be. The hook of the song is, 'I didn't have to die to go to heaven; I just had to go home.' It's also looking back with regret about taking so long to realize those things. There are a lot of different themes on there, but it's a really fun record to listen to."
