Mercer explained the song's meaning to Q magazine: "I wrote it on the living room floor of my apartment when my wife and I were newlyweds. This was when we were just starting our little domestic life together, about to have our first daughter. So it was kind of this song about my wife, our relationship and this whole new life we have ahead of us."
This is the first single from the Shins Port Of Morrow album, the band's…
Well, this is just a simple song,
To say what you done.
I told you 'bout all those fears,
And away they did run.
