Album: Hold Time (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Matt Ward told The Sun February 20, 2009 about this song, which speaks of the Portland singer's Catholic childhood. He explained: "I have a very strong belief in God. An idea in the record is that so much inspiration needs to be stumbled upon and not planned out as if there's a mysterious connection, a higher power. It's difficult to touch on these things with normal human communication but music and poetry have a way of getting closer to them."
