Marmozets vocalist Becca MacIntyre penned this soft-focus ballad after losing her grandmother in 2014. She told Kerrang:
"I was crying when I wrote this out of grief for my nan. I think in writing this, it helped me crack on and get back to doing what I'm supposed to be doing. That was my way of dealing with it. It's a way of saying she'll never really be gone. Every time we perform that song, I'll be able to reminisce about her. I found a way of getting over the really hard part of losing her, but still be able to carry her with us."
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
