Vocalist Danny O'Donoghue has said that the song reflects the tough times that life has in store. On 4Music's 4Play he referred to the loss of his father five months after a bandmate lost his mother to a terrible illness and claimed that such events could be overcome if people stuck together.[3] A James Ash Remix of the song was released in 2009. James Ash is a member of the band Rogue Traders.

Music video

The music video opens with various screenshots of an urban area in New York City which appears to be heavily graffitied. There are also shots of the full band playing their musical instruments in a flat room. However, the video quickly centres around Danny as he begins to sing while walking about the city. There are a few shots of the whole band playing the song in the flat but the main part of the video in this area is when Mark sings his verse. Although the video was uploaded to The Script's YouTube channel on 27 February 2008, the song became available to download on 18 March 2008 on the Irish iTunes Store, the video is available to download from iTunes.
