Backed by his band the Deacons of Soul, soul singer Brian Owens
challenges the idea that a man isn't supposed to cry or show vulnerability. The lyrics recall moments of joy, like watching his children grow, and moments of sadness, like losing his father. He notes: "When a grown man cries, he may not even have tears. But that doesn't mean he's not crying. The vulnerability of those moments can show a man's true strength. It can be hard to be a man, to be a father and raise children, be a husband and be responsible for others. I want this song to give men permission to say it isn’t always easy - and that's OK."
