  • Lyrics
  • Grant co-wrote this acoustic rock track, which acknowledges that trials and tribulations happen to all of us, with Ian Fitchuk and Justin Loucks. The singer explained in press materials how she hooked with her collaborators: "Mindy Smith asked me to sing a background part on her latest record and they were producing it. They already had the idea for the verses and I wrote the chorus and we wrote the last verse together. It's been hard times on a lot of levels for a lot of people. I don't know anybody that is saying this is the easiest and best time in life."
