The band’s vocalist Gary Cherone talked about the track, saying: “Every once in a while, we’ll harness some kind of magic, and I think we did on this one. It’s a universal theme. It’s about restoring someone’s faith in love…we feel that it’s the perfect marriage of lyrics and melody,” Gary Cherone.
The guitarist Nuno Bettencourt also shared his opinion on the song, saying: “How do you play a blistering solo, making it feel like a rainbow? It’s a groove we’ve never done acoustically. It’s got my favorite guitar solo, it’s an up-tempo, moving song,” Nuno Bettencourt said.
