Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of British singer-songwriter Daley's debut mixtape. He told Artist Direct that the song is a rumination on his journey this far. The British singer-songwriter explained: "At the time I wrote it, I wanted to write a song that summed up my journey as an artist and a person in terms of my career and having to be patient, wait, and do things the right way. I've been in situations where I felt like I should throw my album out or compromise on things. It's come around, and I'm really glad I didn't do that. It's paid off in the right way. I wanted to make a statement about that. If you're persevering with what you're doing and doing it the right way, eventually it will pay off. I think a lot of people relate to that in a lot of different ways."
