Songfacts®:

  • This Gym Class Heroes song is about powering through negative thoughts and anxieties to live life with gusto. It might be risky, but it's worth it. Lead singer Travie McCoy sings:

    If we're gonna' lose this thing
    Then we're goin' out in style


    The title "Live A Little" doesn't appear in the lyric.
  • Travie McCoy told Rolling Stone in early 2008 when the band were recording the album that he was especially psyched by the Beach Boys-style harmonies on this track. He said: "I listen while I'm in the shower. And I feel extra clean when I'm done."
