This uplifting slice of funk finds Kali Uchis singing of nurturing her spirits following a difficult time. But we've been struggling endless days Someday we'll find the love 'Cause after the storm's When the flowers bloom Uchis explained the song's meaning: "We can find solace in the fact that we have to go through the bad stuff to truly get to the good," she said. "Just because you're losing at the moment doesn't mean you've lost yet. The storm may be scary now but it's how your flowers bloom later, and paradise is just beyond the rainbow."
The BADBADNOTGOOD-produced track features Tyler, the Creator and Bootsy Collins. This was the first time that Uchis had worked with the funk legend but she had collaborated with Tyler several times before including on his tracks "See You Again," "F---ing Young/Perfect" and "Find Your Wings." The Colombian songstress also references the rapper's Flower Boy album several times during the tune.
The song tackles themes of survival and inner conflict. Uchis explained to Genius: "I have a huge level of respect for people who actually work hard and are survivors. When you're in a good place or when you're the unicorn that was able to get out of the circumstances, that doesn't happen for a lot of people because of the way the system is built. It's easy to be like, 'Oh well, I got here. Anything is possible. You can do it, too. Why can't you just do it for yourself?' It's not that easy for everybody."
