This is the opening track from This Loud Morning
, the second major-label studio album by American singer-songwriter and American Idol
Season 7 winner David Cook, which was released on June 28, 2011. In an interview with AINow.org
Cook explained he wanted the album to have a loose theme that is open to interpretation by the listener. He described this song as being about "falling asleep and escaping the day, and using sleep as a reprieve," the middle of the album being "the gestation cycle of a relationship from start to finish", and the final track "Rapid Eye Movement
" as being about waking up from a dream and having to face actual reality.
