My Way

Album: Time Of My Life (2011)
  • 3 Doors Down singer Brad Arnold explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct editor Rick Florino: "That song is about getting tired of putting up with somebody's s--t [Laughs]. The key line in that song is 'I could spend my whole life waiting on your words' instead of just saying, 'Screw it, I'm doing it like I want to.' I think that's important for everybody at some point in their life. You can be shown examples and be taught this or that. Ultimately, it's up to you to do it the way you do it."
