This delicate ballad tells the story of a life cut tragically short by suicide, from the point of view of those left behind. All three members of the band have known someone close to them that committed suicide. Bassist Jay DeMarcus explained to CMT News how he and his cousin, singer Gary LeVox, were affected: "That song, in particular, was a really tough one to cut because all of our lives have been affected by suicide. Gary and I had in uncle in 2001 that took his own life. We were very, very close to him, and we were affected by that greatly. We played music with him a lot and grew up with him. Joe Don, as well, had a friend in high school that took his own life. So I think that for us that song hit really close to home and dealt with a lot of emotions that we'd been feeling -- and dealt with it in a way that was so delicately put. We felt like it was something that we could sing about, dealing with a very difficult matter that a lot of lives are affected by. It could give you a little bit of hope and a little way to deal with a tragic situation."
Guitarist Joe Don Rooney added: "It's a story that you get in your mind as you hear the lyrics. My friend who committed suicide was 17, the summer before senior year. That second verse -- "In my mind, I keep you frozen like a 17-year-old" -- it's eerie to me and it's haunting. At the same time, it's a poignant message for the youth out there, for the teenagers out there, struggling and contemplating that decision, which they shouldn't make. That's why this song's got a lot of angst in it because it wants to let that [message] out of the bag -- that's not the answer. You don't have to do that. There's so much more in your life to live for. There are so many more people in your life that are going to be affected by a decision like that. That's why I do love that song."
