This song is about how you'll always love that certain someone no matter what. Through fights, and bad times, and how sometimes you can take for granted what you have. Sometimes it takes the threat of death to realize how much you truly love someone. (thanks, Stephanie - Mill Creek, WA)
According to Nickelback's lead singer Chad Kroeger, this is their very first song about being in love. Their other songs, like "How You Remind Me" and "Because Of You" are only ABOUT love; this song is about being IN love. (thanks, Arianna - Largo, FL)
This was Nickelback's fourth Top Ten single on the Billboard Hot 100. It did very well on the US Pop, digital, and adult charts, was the only Nickelback single after "How You Remind Me" to not chart on either of the Rock charts. (thanks, Lyndsay - Charlotte, NC)
Shaun Morgan of Seether
Shaun breaks down the Seether songs, including the one about his brother, the one about Ozzy, and the one that may or may not be about his ex-girlfriend Amy Lee.
Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
Kristian Bush of Sugarland
Kristian talks songwriting technique, like how the chorus should redefine the story, and how to write a song backwards.
