Lzzy Hale wrote the song with Scott Stevens, who also worked on Halestorm's "Apocalyptic
" and "Amen
." Regarding its lyrical content, Hale said: "I was on the edge of this world getting completely lost in oblivion, but even though it was the harder of two choices, I didn't just let the darkness and depression in my mind dig me an early grave. I didn't just sit and let it take me."
Hale added that she hopes the song will remind its listeners of their strength individually and that they're not alone.
