All These Lives

  • Chris Daughtry wrote this with Mitch Allan, who is lead singer of the band SR-71. Daughtry said of the song: "We didn't want to write about the same old thing. He brought up the theme of child abduction and it became a really deep and emotional song. A song shedding light on the people out there that do that sort of thing. As a parent, this hit close to home because no parent would want to go through that." >>
