Songfacts®:

  • Casting Crowns frontman Mark Hall explained that this song deals with the wayward human heart. "It's combating that logic that we have in us that says when we fail, we need to make it right," he said. "We think we need to make things right with God. We think we've got to make him proud again. Not only does it not work, it's not needed. We're fighting a battle that's already won and that's what this song is about."
