This song is about the famous New Testament "Love" chapter of 1 Corinthians 13. Heath explained to Christian Music Today why this is his favorite track from What If We: "I've always liked ballads a bit more than up-tempo songs because they have more feeling to them. It was written with my friend Chad Cates from when we were in a Bible study together, and the focus of that group was 1 Corinthians 13. We dissected it for like 12 weeks, and it ended up impacting me on so many more levels, not just in understanding romantic love, but also loving in a more practical, everyday way. We are called to love the world, and [this passage] is about how it should look."
Brandon Heath performed this affectionate tune at Country music superstar Carrie Underwood's wedding to Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher on July 10, 2010. Noted as the couple's song, Heath's performance of the tune served as the couple's first dance, and was Carrie's surprise for the groom.
