It's Just You

Album: The Sun Comes Out Tonight (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Filter close The Sun Comes Out Tonight with this track, which was inspired by the huge impact that their hit single "Take A Picture" has had on their fans. Vocalist Richard Patrick told Artist Direct: "I get e-mails from people all the time referencing that song. Music is the only thing I have. I didn't want to do drugs. I don't want to smoke. I don't want to drink. I don't want to eat. I listen to music to calm me down. Getting into music wasn't about chicks, money, or cars. My idols were Al Jourgensen, Nivek Ogre, Joe Strummer, and Bono. Those are my heroes. To know that my music actually meant something to someone at a super personal level, I decided to leave the record on a super high note. I wanted to let everybody know even when they're at their most vulnerable, you can always make it. There's hope at the end of any situation. I've been through it. I've been to Iraq. Someone shot a fu--ing a rocket at us after we got off stage. I've been all over the world with my music. I've experienced all of it."
