In this soaring, romantic song, Heavy Hours frontman Mike Marcagi is looking to run away with his loved one, just like wildfire. It started out as an unfinished song their producer, Simone Felice, showed them. "He was like, 'Hey, here's an idea that never got finished. I think it's gonna disappear from the earth forever,'" Marcagi said on the Songfacts Podcast
. "So the story of this song, it was really just a collaboration. It was so many different people writing and putting it together. It wasn't until the very end after it was recorded that we started to think about the lyrics, so it definitely is one of those songs where the story of the lyrics can mean whatever you want them to, to yourself.
But the story of the song was kind of was a wildfire. It started out as an idea and then it just sort of consumed the studio for the day and we just went wild with it."
