In Their Words: “This is the happiest song I have ever written, which is an oddity for a time marked by headlines of a global pandemic, the failings of democracy and a battered and bruised planet. I used to regularly fall into the trap of focusing on the bad side of everything, but I’m digging my way out of it now. This album is about a new focus to choose optimism over despair, dig a little deeper for a bigger sense of purpose and find more reasons to smile. We haven’t played a show since the end of 2019, and this is the song I cannot wait to close a show with when we get to do it again. I have been dreaming of the feeling of an audience joining in the countdown of the bridge and helping us take out that final chorus. It hasn’t happened yet, and it already gives me chills.” — David McMillin
