Songfacts®:

  • This track from New York based dance-punk outfit The Rapture's fourth studio album In The Grace of Your Love is about frontman Luke Jenner's late mother. He told Spin magazine: "It's about my mom looking down on me from wherever she is. It's about her being proud of me, if she's out there. I think all children want their parents to be proud of them. My mom couldn't be here for this record, so that song is me imagining what she would say if she were here."
