I was out to dinner with a friend a few weeks ago and we discussed over tacos how Tori Kelly’s been quiet lately.

Tori’s vocals are perfect and Lecrae’s verses really showcase a sense of struggle. The song speaks of the complications of being at one’s wit’s end. Everything seems to be going wrong but in those moments, there are still people you can turn to for support.
In the description for the lyric video, Lecrae and Tori state that they wrote the song “to share [their] hope in the midst” of the pain of cancer. “At the time of this song’s composition, some of our loved ones were battling cancer.
