The tune had been around for over ten years before it made it onto Uncaged
. "It's a really old song," the band's keyboardist and guitarist Coy Bowles told The Boot
. "It's probably one of the oldest if not the oldest song Zac, Sonia Leigh and Wyatt Durette have written. It was inspired by a time when one of Wyatt's first relationships was going sour. He had a single moment when he realized that this is the end and he saw the goodbye in her eyes. So it's explaining that moment of revelation he had."
"Sometimes you don't want things to go a certain way but you know they do," added percussionist Daniel De Los Reyes. "We have to accept it, but it's easier said than done. But it still has to be done."
