David Nail penned this promise to his wife Catherine during a time when they were having issues in their marriage. He recalled to The Boot
: "I wrote this song at our first house in Franklin, [Tennessee.] It was a tiny, little house, and Catherine - we just had - we just had one of those big ol', huge fights, a lot of nasty things said. She went to bed, and I sat down at the table, and I had this little recorder, and I sang it as I wrote it, and I didn't sing it again until the day we went in and recorded it."
