Guitarist Nick Wheeler told Ultimate-Guitar.com
that it was him who came up with the bulk of this song. He explained: "That song for a long time was just me strumming a guitar and Tyson (Ritter) singing."
Wheeler added in the publicity materials for When the World Comes Down
that when they got back to the rest of the band and started jamming it, "there's something not quite right. It sounded like alt country southern rock but the chord changes were too quick. Then, completely frustrated, we played it for Eric and he says, 'what's wrong with the demo? Just play it like that.' And it worked and we decided to track it live and now we love it."
