Songfacts®:

  • Brice penned this song with American singer-songwriter Billy Montana and frequent collaborator Jon Stone for his sophomore album, Hard 2 Love. Brice believes it "is one of the top two or three songs I've written." He explained, "It's probably the best track on the album, even from the first line, 'The Saturday downpour carved out rivers in the sand.' It's got this dream quality, and a really beautiful melody."
  • Brice said the lyrics were inspired by the first time he ever met his fiancée Sara whilst walking on North Myrtle Beach when he was around 18 years old: "It's about spending a seven-day vacation at the beach and meeting somebody," he explained. "The twist is that it was pouring down rain, and gray and misty and overcast the whole seven days. But in the guy's mind, it was perfect and the most incredible thing he ever experienced. He's lived those seven days a thousand times. I wrote it about meeting Sara. And I'm connected to it because Myrtle Beach, where I'm from, is the epic place to have that kind of spring break experience. I think it will remind everybody of when they were in their teens. When those days are gone, they're gone man. You can go back when you're twenty-one or twenty-five. But it's never the same. You don't get those days back."
