Songfacts®:

  • Lead vocalist Josh Havens said in a video interview that this song came out of a conversation he had with guitarist Matt Faqua while they were writing in Nashville. "I brought up how one of my favorite things in life was coming off the road and doing bedtime with my girls," he explained. "It's such a precious moment to me… there's so many moments in life like that, that are so precious and they all pass by so quick. This life is about living in the moment and making the most of our time here."
