Both artists, Ian Axel and Chad King, were interviewed by songwritersuniverse.com.
We were both going through something pretty intense. It was a song that we just needed to write. (At the time) we were both working day jobs, and I remember when I was working at my job, I couldn’t stop thinking about the idea in this song…the way it made me feel, because it was so cathartic. And Chad would meet me on my lunch break, and I had my ukulele—that’s what we wrote it on. We would write it in the park during a 45-minute break, and then we would write it after work. It took like three weeks to come out, because we only had like an hour here and there. It felt so urgent, and I remember crying so much, writing that song. So it was definitely one of the most powerful experiences writing a song.

For me, it also felt like an art piece. I remember when we were finishing up the song, and there was the decision of whether to say “Say something I’m giving up on you” as the last line. And I remember Ian saying it, and then saying “No no, don’t say I’m giving up on you, just say…Say something.” And I remember his saying it, and it felt like that was it. It felt complete to me. I don’t know…there’s something about that song that felt like a piece of art. It felt like a painting.
