This is a single from Christian pop-rock band, BarlowGirl's fifth studio album, Love & War. Alyssia Barlow, who penned the song, explained its meaning and message to New Release Tuesday: "The song really came about in a moment in my life where I was in a season of difficulty. Following God is amazing, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Following God comes with ups and downs. I was in an uncertain season. I know God's promises and what God has put on my heart, but I wasn't seeing God's promises being fulfilled and I was very uncomfortable. I was telling myself that I'm done with this valley and ready for the mountaintop. There was this day when I was writing for the album and I was struggling personally. I was journaling about wanting God to sing a love song over me. I wanted to hear God singing over my life.
I was picturing a mother and father singing a love song over their child while rocking them to sleep. God does sing over us songs that tell us what He thinks about us. David in the Psalms writes about wanting to know God's thoughts about him. In that moment in my journey, I realized that I don't know the outcome of my journey but if I feel God's heart towards me, I have security. My security doesn't come from knowing the answers or the destination but from knowing God's love for me. That moment was what inspired the song."
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
