Crtitical reception

Radio Creme Brulee stated that "On the song, Keating sings from the perspective of a man reminiscing about a love that took the form of a journey. This man pines with a hint of optimism for the return of that loved one. The track opens with a sparse acoustic guitar arrangement and a light mid-tempo percussion that one can easily snap his or her fingers to. It incorporates more sonic layers as the verses progress serving as a gradual build-up for the achingly beautiful chorus. The song paints quite a picture and despite its lyrics, has an uplifting feel with a flavor that is reminiscent of Keating’s debut single 'When You Say Nothing at All.'"[2]

Music video

The music video for the song premiered on 28 November 2012, via YouTube. The music video part live, part animated.[3]
