A major theme running throughout the Head or Heart
album is change. This song is about Perri's decision to move from her home in Philadelphia to Los Angeles to follow in the footsteps of her older musician brother Nick Perri, the former lead guitarist of Shinedown. "I don't know where you get that type of courage. It's something that has to happen inside of you. I was 20-years-old and it was the week before my 21st birthday and my brother said, 'Move to California,' and I said, 'OK,'" she recalled to Radio.com
. "A lot of times our dreams aren't where we grew up. We have to go find them… I would not stop until my life was burning gold, which I think it is now."
