In Their Words: “I wrote this song with Micky Braun in Boston last year and it ended up on the new Micky and The Motorcars album as well. I’ve never been very religious, but my friend Brian in Idaho sent me the line: ‘I should thank my mother’s god’ and it set the theme for the rest of the song. I’d also been hanging on to the chorus line: ‘Throw your heart in the river and hope it sees the ocean someday’ for a while. Micky came up with some really great lines for both verses and helped me round out the chorus. We probably finished the tune in 10 minutes over a bottle of wine. Lyrically it’s one of my favorite tracks on the album. My favorite songs are always the easiest to write it seems.” — Jeff Crosby
