This is the opening track of A Real Good Kid, an album recorded during a period when Mike Posner moved back into the house outside Detroit where he grew up so he could stay with his terminally ill father during his final months.
Jon Posner died of brain cancer on January 11th, 2017. This song details Posner talking about the day his father passed away and the impact it left on him. It ends with an "I love you so much" audio snippet from his dad.
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
