I started writing this song when I was 19, in '99, and found it folded up on a piece of paper in an old book when I was doing some cleaning. I only had the chorus, but a note at the bottom of the page said "Give it a whirl," which is part of the lyrics. I decided to finish it up, after all these years. The song is really about how similar we all are, no matter where we come from, and how we all have a life to live, so live it while we still can. It's a chorus-driven song, even though the chorus isn't very long. In my head it sounds like Keith Urban singing it, for what it's worth.
