Songfacts®:

  • Colbie Caillat closes All Of You with the only track that she penned without outside help. She told the story of the song to Artist Direct: "It was the first song I wrote for All Of You: "I was on tour in Germany. My boyfriend was in my band at that time. We were on tour together, and we were falling in love. Every time we tried to go sightseeing or we went on a jog, it would start raining. I thought it was this magic we were creating being in love and all that cheesy stuff [Laughs]. I went to my hotel one day and wrote the song for him."
