  • Lyrics
  • This reflective Natalie Hemby, Kate York and Rosi Golan acoustic-based song sounds like a whispered prayer. "The first time I heard it I knew I wanted it on this record," said band member Jimi Westbrook. "It has one of the most beautiful and haunting melodies I've ever heard - one of those songs that feels like it's washing over you as you listen to it. It's one of my favorite things we've ever cut."
