  • Dustin from Whitehouse, TxJohn plays the harmony line of the chorus on guitar. A testament to his unique orchestration of music and usage of talents. He does a lot of creative stuff like this in the studio.
  • Jen from L, TxActually Clubber, he wrote this song way before Jessica Simpson. It was called "Trust Myself" at the time he only sang it in concerts and not too often. This new version has been changed, some words are different but the same sentiment is behind it. I have both and love both versions.
  • Clubber Lange from Ocean Gate, NjYou can tell he wrote this about Jessica Simpson...He was on-again-of-again with her at the time "Continuum" was being written/released.."Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" also sounds way too much like a "I miss Jessica" song...They still kick ass though in my book...
  • Charlotte from New-york, NyI love this one because i guess that he admits that he not the loving man that eveybody thinks he is.
