Reed is an Americana singer/songwriter from Arizona. He told Songfacts about this song: "I was back in Tucson. Sitting on a back patio of a friend. I was strumming his guitar. The wind kicked up. It felt like the more I played the more the wind kicked up. The song lyrics are pretty true. I was thinking of long lost loves and current muses. I just realized how much better I do on tour, and when I'm always in motion, like the wind."
