The only David Nail solo composition on The Sound of a Million Dreams
, the Country Music singer wrote the song about his wife Catherine Werne, whom he married on June 6, 2009 in Franklin, Tennessee. He told the story of the song to Roughstock
: "When we were planning our wedding, we wanted to write our own vows. When Catherine went to bed one night, I wrote hers, just the first things that came to mind. They didn't end up being exactly our vows, but they were the basis for them. This wasn't supposed to be a song, but it became one. It's a very honest, personal lyric. As a sidenote, I wrote out the lyrics by hand and framed them for my groomsmen. It's symbolic of our wedding day and has become one of my favorite songs, obviously for personal reasons, but also because it came so organically, in lyrics and in music. It starts as a ballad, but then becomes just a wall of sound. It almost transforms into a jam-band song by the end."
