Here we have a rare love song from Cold, a band known for sullen themes and sonic assaults. On the band's sixth album, The Things We Can't Stop
, lead singer Scooter Ward wanted to honor his wife, who went through the turmoil of Cold's career - including their rise in the early '00s and breakup in 2006 - right there with him.
In a Songfacts interview with Ward
, he explained: "I'm not really good at writing love songs. I'm good at writing tragic songs, and songs about being a musician and about what I want to do for other people and things like that, but I'm not good at love songs. So, I wrote the best type of love song I could for my wife, and it was beautiful. This is why I do it all: It's to give my family a better life, and that's it. Most of the time we don't have a better life, we just have a life, and it's alright. But she loved it, and that's all that matters."
