Monroe's intention was to write a positive tune that still had some some meat and substance. "I really wanted to challenge myself," she told Billboard
magazine. "I tried to think of some Sheryl Crow songs I love that are uptempo and make you feel good. I love those songs, I've just never written one."
"I was writing with Luke Laird and Barry Dean
, and Luke had that sound going," Monroe continued. "I really think it's important to express hope to people - and to myself - that if you're alive and breathing, you're doing so for a reason, even if you've been through hell in the past. I think it's a way to say 'Keep going.' I love the line 'I'm better dancing when I don't look down.' Just live. Don't overanalyze. Just go with it. It's a happy-sounding song. Who would have thought it?"
