Songfacts®:

  • This song was written by lead singer Mike Eli and EYB guitarist James Young, along with Nashville tunesmiths Jon Nite and Ross Copperman. Neverland is an imaginary faraway place created by J.M. Barrie, where Peter Pan and the Lost Boys live. However, Mike Eli explained to The Boot the track is not a literal account of the fictional location.

    "The whole point of it was never really to touch that. It's more about never wanting to stop falling," he explained. "We all know what that feels like. We wanted to kind of stay away from the Peter Pan idea but still make it feel like that way."
  • Directed by frequent Eli Young Band collaborator Brian Lozzaro ("Even If It Breaks Your Heart," "Say Goodnight," "Turn It On"), the song's music video was shot in the band's home state of Texas.

    "It was actually a location that Brian had scouted out for a previous EYB video that didn't get used. We shot right along some train tracks and we didn't really know if or when a train would come by. It was fun to watch everyone scramble for the shot when one came by," bass player Jon Jones told ET Online. "Brian Lazzaro has become our go-to video director over the years. He always comes to the table with a great vision and makes videos that really stand out."
