  • This is one of several tracks on Live Life Living inspired by Example's wife, Australian model and actress Erin McNaught. "It's obviously about me being lost before I met Erin," he told The Daily Mirror, "and now I'm in a much better place."

    "When the second chorus comes in, it's purely channeling Oasis," Example added. "'Don't live your life for maybeeee, Somebody out there waiiitng now, breeak it down, build you up agaaaaain,' it feels like a 'Champagne Supernova' sentiment in that lyric, it's a good line to belt out at the top of your voice. It's a sing a long moment."
