    With an instantly addictive melody and a chorus proclaiming “You’ll make it on your own,” it’s easy to envision this song cheering up the heartbroken, but it’s as much for the band as it is for the listener. In 2013, they were offered a major professional opportunity: a lucrative six-month residency on a cruise ship. Unfortunately, they were dismissed after two weeks and deported back to Canada. Many bands would call it quits after such hopeful dreams were dashed, but Of Gentlemen & Cowards soldiered on. Lead vocalist Simon Edwards wrote the song on a soul-searching hiking excursion shortly after their high seas adventures fell apart. It quickly came together, because greater truths were revealing themselves. The disappointment isn’t important; it’s that they took the risk. It didn’t work out, but they’re stronger for it, resulting in a song that could only have be inspired by experience.
