I find myself looking back at the Christmases of my youth, life seemed so much simpler then. There’s a line in the song that says, ‘these days peace on earth is hard to find, and I need you to remind me one more time.’”
Speaking about the song, Faith Child pens down; “The song encapsulates God loving us in spite of our weaknesses and shortcomings, and with Him being the creator of the world, He is in control of every situation and season we go through. A gentle reminder during this unprecedented time we are currently facing. I’m a fan of Hip Hop and a fan of worship, and I wanted to write a song that fuses both worlds.”
