Songfacts®:

  • For vocalist Ivan Moody, the most difficult part of being in a band is the amount of time they spend on the road away from their families. This ballad reflects how heart-rending it is to miss out on spending time with his children. "With that said, I still love what I do and I would never change it for anything," said Moody in a video interview, "so this was my apology to the ones we leave behind every time we go on the road."
