Grammer explained to Billboard
why he titled his third album after this song:
"If someone does a memoir, there's a piece of the memoir that everybody really wants to hear about – the good parts, that's what we want. I want you to tell me what it is to be alive as you.
The translation from your heart to the recording usually loses a lot – [it's like] an emotional telephone game, so when you hear it back it's like 'That's not quite right.' But then there are times, especially a line like 'Tell me your story but don't leave the good parts out' for me, I knew that that carried even more than I initially felt. Once that line came out of my mouth, I was like 'Oh man, that's one of my favorite lines I've ever written.' I remember calling my manager saying 'think we have a title.'"
