Album: Everything in Transit (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • Jack's Mannequin lead singer Andrew McMahon wrote this song as a message to his wife when he found out he had Leukemia. He is telling her he doesn't want to leave her. McMahon also wrote a song called "Katie" which is dedicated to his sister who gave him bone marrow. Both songs were played live at a Jack's Mannequin concert on July 11, 2006 in Cleveland, Ohio, with Katie in attendance for the performance. >>

  • Greg from Atlanta, GaI'm pretty sure this is wrong...Everything in Transit was finishing up being mastered when he was diagnosed with lymphomia, and the song was written before he was diagnosed.
