This was the first song penned by TFK frontman/songwriter Trevor McNevan for The End Is Where We Begin, but it only came after a struggle. He told New Release Tuesday: "I had been trying to hone in on what this record should sound like, what it should feel like, etc, and I started to get frustrated. I was shooting in 10 different directions and wasn't happy with my shots. I remember going out to the deck, pulling my hair out, and looking up at the stars, and just crying out to God, wondering why I was feeling this way, why the uncertainty in direction? I'm blessed to not be very acquainted with 'writer's block;' it seems to never stop coming. I give God all the glory for that and am grateful, although it's sometimes very annoying when I can't shut it off!
I remember hearing God say, 'Go back,' so I went inside and pulled out our first two independent albums. I remember listening to 'Small Town' and 'Lift It' again for the first time in years, and was standing there in tears. God's anointing was still on those songs. I needed to get my head out of 'what makes a great song,' and just write from the heart. I shared this with my wife, and she said, 'Why don't you write about this? About how the Holy Spirit speaks to you and how you feel right now.' It hit me like a brick. So I went upstairs and sat down with an acoustic for the rest of the night and wrote this song. This song is as honest as it gets."
