So Divine...

Album: Simplicity (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about friends who died too soon. A specific inspiration was a roadie for the band named Keith, who died in a car accident at a young age. In our interview with Tesla lead singer Jeff Keith, he explained: "That inspired us: losing somebody too soon. Then we started looking not in the music world, but in life in general, about how we lose so many great, beautiful souls way too soon."
