Hannah Hooper, who is the band's keyboardist and Christian Zucconi's romantic partner recalled the night when her beau wrote the song. "I remember sneaking in hearing him working on this amazing song and seeing him headbanging over a keyboard playing finger drums," she told Radio.com
. "I think a lot of it was just being off tour."
"We'd been off tour for half a year when he wrote 'Enlighten Me' and there was a line, 'I don't feel like my life is real,'" Hooper continued. "We were having a hard time feeling present on tour and understanding our band is becoming a bigger band and that we were actually surviving as artists and Christian and I were still totally in love and that our band was actually friends… all these things that we kinda took for granted… we didn't even have the time to process. 'Enlighten Me' was a way for him to come to terms with all these things. It was a really beautiful healing process for him to write that song."
