Back To Me

Album: Time Of My Life (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • 3 Doors Down singer Brad Arnold explained the background to this heartfelt ballad in an interview with Artist Direct: "It's not actually about me. It's about somebody very close to me going through a time in their life and they needed to put someone behind them. When it's time to do that, you have to ultimately let the person go and get back to yourself. That's one of the more meaningful songs to me. I know what the person was going through, and I tried to put it into words. I think it was therapeutic for both of us."
