Talking about the inspiration behind the track, Ryan explains “They’re an iconic pair, I know. But, for me, 2 of the ultimate examples of how no matter what, even with the best intentions, things will inevitably go wrong. This song was originally written in the first person ("I go to church on Sunday morning" etc...), and inspired by my marriage falling apart. But taking Stevie's (Van Zandt) advice, about getting away from myself, led the song in more of a story direction. Stevie also came on board as a co-writer for this one. He felt it was a big, important song, and I was thrilled to finish the song, and write it, together. Side note: the amazing Mike Peters (The Alarm) sings backing vocals on this one”.
