Frontman Travis Clark told Alternative Press
about the song: "I sent a demo CD of songs I had been working on to the label with a letter attached saying, 'Hey guys, here are some of my newer songs. I really want to record something new to give to our fans to show appreciation for our first record doing so well.' We didn't plan on having a song that would do just as well as 'Check Yes Juliet
' or 'Secret Valentine,' but after we recorded and put 'Heaven Can Wait' out there, we had radio stations calling and asking to play it because people had been making requests. That's one of the biggest compliments ever--to have people request something that you spent hours and hours creating and perfecting. My favorite line of this song is, 'Here's a song for the nights I drink too much and spill my words." To me, it explains the meaning of the song completely."
