This was one of the last songs The Staves wrote for Dead & Born & Grown
. They explained its meaning to Artist Direct
: "The song's about a tour we did of the States. It was all in VW Camper Vans, and we went from Austin to Boston. It was such an amazing experience. There was so much traveling. We got to see a lot of America for the first time. It was a cool time. We were together. It all felt very alive."
We saw an American bald eagle by a lake," they continued, "and it was the most magical thing. We were all walking around a lake, and we just saw it fly passed us. We saw a lot. When you're on tour, you're just living day to day. There's a certain mood that's quite hard to describe. You're sharing it with other people, and that's very special. That's what it's about."
