In our 2014 interview with Julian Lennon
, he talked about writing this song with Tyler: "Time was tight, but we managed to sit in a room for two hours and just throw everything up against the wall and ask ourselves, 'Well, what do we want to talk about?' Well, we wanted a different take on one of my oldest songs, 'Saltwater
,' but in a slightly more positive or slightly more hopeful mood. Something that you could tap your feet to a bit more than 'Saltwater.'
And from that and that alone, the song was born. It was just a question of having something that we could all relate to that we all believed in and all looked forward to: the fact that there may be some change in the future for the positive."
