Songfacts®:

  • This life-affirming song was the first tune that Gary Go wrote for his debut album. In an interview with Safe Davis transcribed on his website, Gary Go explained: "I wrote it on my favorite piano at my favorite studio in New Jersey USA, right by where that miracle plane landing happened recently on The Hudson river. I was feeling down and I wrote the song about feeling down and finding a way out of the darkness."
