Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Kimberley Perry singing about that initial spark that happens when you meet the "One." The Band Perry co-wrote nine of Pioneer's twelve tracks. The siblings write well together because they each bring their own strengths to the table. "Reid is our bass player so he really handles a lot of the chord structures," said Kimberley. "Neil's our avid reader, so he likes to contribute to lyrics. And I bring a lot of melody to the table. I think it's a really wonderful thing that we're built with such different strengths and that we kind of complement each other."
