“Musically, it sounds to me like Zachariah is standing at the crossroads of Roots Country and Americana, however, he is forging his own path and the road ahead looks like a path well-chosen. His sound is fresh, yet reminiscent of yesterday. His stories are not new, but you have never heard them told this way before. Give him a listen, I think you will like what you hear!” exclaimed Grand Ole Opry member, Jeannie Seely.
The song was written about missing someone that is no longer yours. "I'm being torn from what is moral, wishing I were out just walkin' in his shoes." It is wrong to covet a love that is no longer yours, but you wish so much you could be the person that is loved by your former significant other. It's a terrible feeling.
“Well, I’m stuck without a reason
A common trend that has just eaten up my life
Yet another situation
We all know it never lives up to its hype
I’m not alone but I am lonely
And a victim to the night’s transcendent blues
And when the mornin’ hits my eyelids
Again, I get to missin’ you…”
Zachariah wrote the song essentially because he was in an odd in-between spot with someone who he felt had feelings for him, but also seemed to be in a relationship with someone else. They were good friends and kept getting clues that emotions were involved, but at the end of the day, she always seemed to close her emotions and go back to the other life she was living. There really is no message to the song except for the fact that he was falling for someone who he had to let go.
Zachariah was obsessed with the lonesome moan of Hank Williams. Picking up rhythm guitar at an adolescent age, he strived to be a hillbilly singer like many of his mentors. On many Fridays and Saturdays, you could find him singing in local bars before he was even of age to taste any whiskey.
