Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Danny O'Donoghue singing about the time when you know your days are numbered and you're looking in your loved one's eyes telling them it's not the end, as the energy never dies. He explained it's, "about the moment you realize you may not have long left on this Earth."

    "It's saying to the one you love," O'Donoghue added, "we will meet again in the afterlife."
  • O'Donoghue described this to The Sun as a song about hope. He explained: "There are a lot of worries on people's minds at the moment. Terrorism and the threat that carries – like someone might go to work one day and not return. So with that song we wanted to give a sense of hope."
