This song is an ode to nostalgia and longing for the ease of youth. Mø told The Guardian: "I think everyone grew up thinking that by their mid-20s they'd have everything sorted out, but I know I don't. There is this unidentifiable problem of wanting more from life and never being satisfied. The days are slipping away and you're one step closer to death. Life was so easy as a child, maybe you fall over and you cry but you get back up again."
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
