  • Jennifer Knapp told The Boot that she hopes this song can serve as an inspiration. "It's about, why am I going to hesitate to do something that I know I'm called to do and excited to do?" she said. "And I think, true to form of what I usually do is throw in the pessimistic dark side about what happens when we don't. But it's all about just going out there and saying, 'Listen, you've got the power and the skill and the enthusiasm to get this done. There's no measure of an excuse that you can put between here and there, because you know that you want to do it.'"

    "There's a point in there that says that we kind of limit our reactions to one another with all manner of excuses," Knapp added. "But we can have a lot of fun if we stop judging ourselves and just kind of dive into the experience."
