Frontman Dan Haseltine
explained to CCM Magazine
that this song "talks about the duality of the heart, the way we desire to be loved, and, at the same time, are petrified of letting anyone truly know us. It talks about the longing to be passionately engaged with a whole heart." He added: "It is the song we most closely connect to our work in Africa and the inspiring shift in culture we have seen. People are recognizing that serving people, getting their hands dirty and doing something to help usher in a redemptive story—whether that is providing clean water or simply being a friend to someone who might not have one. Pouring ourselves out is the outward expression of an inward change that comes when the gospel takes root. It is a powerful song and has proven to be a highlight and a worshipful moment when we play it live."
