Michael Clifford and bassist Calum Wood penned the song with David Hodges. Sounds Good Feels Good
producer John Feldmann commented to Fuse TV
: "That song is so goddamn good. David Hodges wrote most of Evanescence's songs, [and] he wrote that Christina Perri song 'A Thousand Years
.' He's a classic songwriter, an artistic, emotional songwriter."
"I heard that song and knew he definitely did it with Michael and Luke. It feels like the Used: early-00s, super emo rock, semi-ballad. The lyrics are great. They remind me of a really great Disney movie, like Maleficent
or something. In the best ways, not in a cheesy way."
