Album: Do You Believe (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Quarterfly is a South Carolina Rock band who wrote this song about looking for a lasting commitment with the producer Michael Wagener, whose credits include work with Janet Jackson, Queen and Motley Crue. Lead singer Kip Darby explained: "We met him and he liked us so much that we got to spend a week with him and write that song. I guess if it all ended today, taking that moment on that porch sitting there with that legend writing that song was pretty cool." (Check out our full interview with Kip Darby.)
