Casting Crowns frontman Mark Hall has been married to Melanie since the early 1990s and in this song he sings of his love for his wife. He explained to New Release Tuesday: "I met her when I was in fifth grade, and the song references the first time I saw her. I still remember being at church, running around with a bunch of guys, and seeing this big, long car pull into the parking lot. Melanie's family stepped out of the car, and when I saw her, I thought, 'WHO is that?' They were moving to Montgomery, Alabama for her dad to serve as minister of music at our church.
The song also flash forwards to our wedding day more than a decade after we met, and I mean it with all my heart when I sing, 'With a sacred promise and a ring that says it all, oh, I've just begun to fall.' I'm still falling after nearly two decades of marriage. There never really has been any one but Melanie. We grew up together in the youth group and I had girlfriends and she had boyfriends, but to me she was always the one."
