The day after her father told her the New York bolt story, Macdonald was writing with her Human Demands
songwriting partner Matt Jones in her dining room. Inspired by her dad's tale and a huge painting of New York's George Washington Bridge hanging on her wall, they came up with a song where a woman is remembering their time in New York with her husband when they "lived like a king and queen." However, now her life is full of "fear and doubt" and she wonders if she's made the right decisions. MacDonald explained to Wonderland
"You'll never know if you've done the right thing or made the right choices in life. We'll never know if there's something better for us. We'll never know if things would be different and that's OK and it's part of being human. We reminisce, we look back, we think what could have been and then we carry on."
