In late 2012 Marika Nord showed up in my kitchen with a guitar and an idea for a song. In my head I heard a quite soft vers and a chorus that really expands and gets wide.
So we tried a few things and came up with a nice pop song. But it felt a little plain and boring. Since I'm a sucker for cello I wrote a 3 piece cello/viola riff that became the main theme throughout the song. Later it expanded and I added even more violas and violins to make the last part of the song more epic.

We also made a promo video for the song. Filmed at a lake near Katrineholm and a small cafe in Mariefred, Sweden.
