Sexsmith explained to CBC Music
: "This was just about meeting my wife and realizing it was something I should investigate or else I might miss the boat on it. Like last chance for love or something. I was in the middle of my acting stupid and doing all the dumb things that hurt everyone in my family in the first place, so when I met her I just felt that where I was going was nowhere. The song is about me looking back with a sense of relief."
