Songfacts®:

  • TobyMac chronicles in this song the love-at-first-sight courtship between him and his Jamaican wife Amanda. He admits the couple have their differences ("I love sunsets but she likes sunrise. I'm always running late and she's always on time"), but they remain devoted to each other. "We're opposites in a way and see things very differently," he said. "She's from a third-world country and I grew up just outside of Washington, D.C., in Virginia. She's a morning person; I'm a night person. But we are committed to laying down our minor differences and holding on to what brings us together."
