There is a certain amount of magic in Inside Wants Out. I think people understand, which was not even the design. The design was that it was just kind of a demo. It was something that would go away after a little while. People would have it at shows until the "real record." It kind of took on this charming life of half-demo, half mix tape. But "Back To You" and "No Such Thing" and "My Stupid Mouth," those were the songs off that record that I felt like were not done.

This is a song about not giving up even when you should. It's about that oh-so-precious and valuable fourteenth chance. That fourteenth chance when things really turn around for ya. And you realize, oh, it was just me. I was the problem.
