Songfacts®:

  • The Lady A trio wrote this poetic ballad with their "Need You Now" collaborator Josh Kear.
  • Dave Haywood told Billboard magazine this song nearly didn't make it onto the 747 album. "We were in the studio and almost ditched it at the last minute, but the guitar player hit a Vince Gill groove, which kind of became the root of the song," he said. "It took off from there."
