The power ballad was written by Laurell Barke, Anna-Klara Folin, John Lundvik and Jonas Thander. Asked by the BBC
what the song's lyrics mean to him, Rice replied:
"I grew up with my mam, and my dad had drug problems and stuff like that, and later on I got to know him. He used to know I was singing and he was dead proud of me. When I'm singing them words at the beginning – 'Hear these words that I sing to you' - it just reminds me of him."
The singer added that his father has now passed away and winning All Together Now
, and representing Great Britain in Eurovision, "would make his world."
