This song is a love letter from LANY's singer Paul Klein to his mom and dad. He expresses gratitude for the way they raised him, and he wants them to know how much he loves them. Klein knows all things in life are temporary and he wants to treat every interaction with his parents as if it is their last.
Klein came up with the idea for the song on a flight to Beijing in the summer of 2019. He explained in an Instagram post that he was thinking about his "uncle buddy," who is in good health but is getting older. The LANY frontman is so busy recording and touring his music, he doesn't get to visit him much. The thought struck him, "What if the next time I get to see him is the last time I'll get to see him?"
Klein added that after facing a new reality amid the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, he realized that "finishing and perfecting this song was imperative."
