  • Lyrics
  • Stevie Nicks recorded this song for the Naomi Watts-starring movie The Book of Henry. Colin Trevorrow, known for 2012's Safety Not Guaranteed, directed the film.
  • The song was written for the film by Ryan Miller, the lead singer of the Boston rock band Guster. He gave a "bullet-point version" of how Nicks ended up singing the track on the band's Facebook page.

    1) My buddy Colin Trevorrow asked me to write a song for Naomi Watts to sing in his movie The Book of Henry (which she does, twice!)

    2) I recorded a version of the song for the end credits with Thomas Bartlett

    3) Colin asks who I think should sing it - 'Stevie Nicks, der.'

    4) 24 hours later: 'Stevie is in.'"
  • The track also includes a 100-piece orchestra on the outro that was recorded at London's Abbey Road studios.
