Oikku:
Matti wrote the original draft of the song with the verse and chorus in 4/4. The two of us worked on it together tweaking the chords, adding the quieter B-section, changing the verse time signature etc. During rehearsals we felt it needed some more material in the middle so we wrote some of it together with the whole band.

Ville:
The vocal background riff ‘Hope/love is the strongest thing …” was a last-minute idea by Matti. He had been talking about some kind of vocal idea for some time, and one day we just started experimenting in the studio which resulted in a new dimension to the song.

The rhythm track for the chorus took a lot of time and experimenting to come up with. We didn’t want to follow the obvious path and just play along the guitars, but create some counterpoint and give a more living rhythm. This is one of the rare places, where someone might feel inspired to dance to our music. Just be careful for the following part in 13/8 time, we don’t wanna be responsible for breaking anybody’s legs.
