Frances Luke Accord is a Chicago-based, indie-folk duo founded by Brian Powers and Nicholas Gunty. Powers started writing this track on the guitar with lyrics about a bluebird in mind. But it evolved into something entirely different - a mellow tune about clinging to hope when the weight of the world gets too heavy.
"It took a really long time to come to the lyrics that ended up being there," Powers told the Songfacts Podcast
in 2023. "All of our tunes wouldn't be what they are without both of our brains pushing at it at a lot of different times and a lot of different angles. A lot of hope occurs in the third verse, like, 'One day we will see eye-to-eye, you and me.' I remember being stuck at that moment and then Nick came up with those lyrics and I was like, 'Oh, yeah, that feels great there for sure.' It's definitely a tune that starts dark on top of this really warm loop and ends hopeful."
