Johnson told Billboard magazine that he sometimes gets concerned about being too personal in his songwriting. He therefore occasionally takes lines out of songs or rewrites them to disguise their meaning. This song, for example, is an ode to his infant daughter, but he doesn't mention her by name. "At listening parties it seems like all the dads that have daughters come up to me when they hear that song and they say, 'Aw, man, I was really feeling that,'" Johnson said. "I realized that although it feels personal to me when I'm writing it and you can tell I'm singing from a place where I'm really feeling those emotions, they're not thinking about my little girl, they're thinking about their own. And so it becomes very impersonal in that way."
