Simon told the story of this song to Artist Direct
: "There was something about the drum patter that Pete Thomas came up with," he said. "We worked out the arrangements and the album together. We rehearsed before we went in."
"There was a power to the rhythm of that track," Simon added. "It's rolling and done with mallets. It had a feeling of movement. It suggested traveling. There's a car trip in there. There's a lot of movement and change. It's a rather personal story of heartbreak set to a travelogue."
