The singer has released 2 versions of the song one is with full-band and the other is an acoustic piano. According to Nicks, the song is more meaningful for those who understands it. She said that it is not for republicans and also not for democrats. The song is just a moment of peace for everyone.
She called it out as a “prayer for our country”. The alluring singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks said that this was a poem she wrote back in 2008. In a statement, she said that she started watching political documentaries back in the 1950s when she was inspired by the political campaign trail.
“It was winter I was in St Charles for editing a concert film. It was a regular day for me going there doing the work, come home, sit with my dog and turn on the TV. It was the election era, Barak Obama and Hilary Clinton were having a one on one battle for the nominations”.
2/7 It was the Democratic Primaries. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were fighting over who would be the candidate for President. I started watching the documentaries being aired from the late 50’s up to the present. Mostly the fight for civil rights – https://t.co/QNf4ZFZXdr

This went on for like 2 months within which she “ had a dream that was so real that I was pretty sure it had happened” she said that it was a dream in which she was at a political benefit attended by Martin Luther King Jr., John Kennedy Bobby Kennedy and John Lewis and all the public figures and she was hypnotized.
A dream song
After opening her eyes from the vivid dream, she started to write down each and every detail of her dream. She told “I was invited to a party to play the piano and sing some songs. It was a benefit. Some political people there. It felt really of prime importance. I was just the piano player part of their dream” Nicks explained “ I started writing the dream after opening my eyes the next day and the music the day after that I never recorded until now. It was the right time for it.”
