Taking a look back David said:"I wrote this song without a guitar in my motel in Nashville. I was definitely affected by the music around me there in Tennessee, and by Dylan who I've always love. It was a challenge when I arrived home a week later to write the guitar arangement for the piece because I had to match what I had heard in my head.

This song was one of those ones that really proved that too me. To me it wounded beautifully atmospheric and had a combination of both love and heartache that I really wanted to get write with the lyrics. Once that was in place producing was just adding icing on the cake.”

I was sitting on the couch that afternoon and thought I'd just mess around on the guitar.
