  • Lyrics
  • Switchfoot drummer Chad Butler told Artist Direct this song was, "inspired by a friend who had left the comforts of home to go serve kids in need half way round the world."
  • The video was shot on the Philippines streets by Manila-based director Enzo Marcos. The band chose to film it in one of the poorest neighborhoods in the Philippines, the village of Tondo in Manila, as their keyboard player Jerome Fontamillas was born just a few miles from Tondo. Marcos latched on to the song's lyric, "Feet ain't even touching ground," as the key to visualizing the feeling of the music.
