Songfacts®:

  • This song reflects Catherine Pierce's contentment after getting engaged to the duo's bass player and musical director Christian "Leggy" Langdon. "It feels so peaceful to sing it," she told The Guardian. "It's about my fiancé. It's just about loving each other really purely."

    "A lot of the songs (for Creation) I wrote were about things going well," she added. "Which was weird for me. Before it was always like: 'Why is this not going well?' But I really enjoyed writing happy songs."
