  • Singer Michael "Fitz" Fitzpatrick told Radio.com that this song speaks of music being the means by which everyone can fit in.

    "'A Place for Us' goes to the fundamental human desire for connection," he explained. "And it doesn't matter if you're the jock, the popular person in school, or you're the loner. Everybody on some level feels this loneliness or this need for connection, and wanting to feel like they belong. That song says, it doesn't matter who you are: there is a place, and we can maybe all find that together with music."
