Album: Heaven in this Hell (2013)

  • Orianthi wrote this song with Nashville-based songwriters Blair Daily (Rascal Flatts' "Stand," Uncle Kracker's "Smile") and Bobbie Huff, who is known for his work on the albums of 3 Doors Down, Halestorm and Shinedown. The Australian musician recalled to "Once I had the title, the lyrics and the music came really fast. It was one of those sessions where everything went right.
    "It's a love song," she continued, "and I guess I approached the solo in a different way; it's slower, not a shred thing at all. When I record a solo, I usually have the melody in my head. I try to find the melody on the guitar and see where it takes me. It depends on the day, really – some days it works, and other days it takes a lot of effort. This was on one of the good days."
