Til That Day

Album: Simplicity (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The closing track from Tesla's Simplicity album, lead singer Jeff Keith told us that it's the song he most connects with on the set. Explaining the song's meaning, he said: "The first child for me to bring into the room is my 3-year-old son. So it's my first child to bring into the world. I thought, Wow, how would I treat this idea of a song to just say what would be my best collection of thoughts to help inspire this child to create his own path and make his own decisions? And that's probably why it's the most partial to me, because how would I turn to my son and say, 'Hey, here's the best suggestions and ideas that I can give you to try to make it through this wild and wacky world.'"
