Secrets frontman Richard Rogers explained the thinking behind this song to Billboard magazine. "We all want to end up on top and be the best at whatever venture we are on," he said. "Most times when it matters most, it feels like the universe wants you to lose, but I don't think that's true. I believe that where there is the option of losing we are presented with the opportunity to rise above and win as well. Greatness can't arise through typical lives."
