Arnold told Artist Direct
: "That's probably my favorite song that we've ever done. I look at our albums like chapters of my life. I'm happy to say that I'm in a happier and better chapter now than I was during Away from the Sun
. Each album has had a song that was my favorite at the time. During Away from the Sun
, that song was definitely "Away from the Sun
." It was about being in the dark. On Seventeen Days
, there's a song called 'The Real Life' that's more about standing in the shadows but seeing the light and going to it. 'Let Me By Myself' is simply about standing in the light and being yourself. It's so easy to get lost being what someone else wants you to be and forgetting about who you want to be. That song is about getting back to those things, being happy with yourself and who you are."
