This was released as the second single from the American Alternative Rock band The Goo Goo Dolls tenth studio album, Magnetic. The song premiered on US radio stations on July 23, 2013 and was officially released the same day.
We asked frontman John Rzeznik
if are there any recurring lyrical themes on Magnetic
? He replied: "Yeah, when I look back on it now, the theme that really sticks out for me, or the thread that kind of runs through all the songs on this album is that life is moving really quickly, and I better get up, get out and live it before it's too late."
Goo Goo stickman Mike Malinin told Modern Drummer magazine about his percussion work on the track: "This was the most interesting song for me to record. We cranked the mic on the snare drum and I played a pattern with brushes as softly as I possibly could. I liked the feel we were getting that way. Then I went back and recorded snare hits and kick drum, with shaker at the top. It was a fun experiment, and I think it's one of the best songs on the album."
The Scorpions and UFO guitarist is also a very prolific songwriter. He explains how he writes with his various groups, and why he was so keen to get out of Germany and into England.
