A statement from Matt:

"The musical this song belongs to, YOU GO ON, follows a group of freshmen in high school as they try to move forward in the aftermath of a school shooting. The musical was written as my own response to having gone through a school shooting myself, and this song is the thesis statement of the show.

Thank you to my family, my friends, and my cast. This doesn't happen without you all. Special thank you to Ryan Brun, Payton Tevis, the cast of YOU GO ON, and Andrew Lippa for sticking with me. Please consider donating to places that provide relief to victims of gun violence."
