A musical prodigy, Jonny Lang was just 15 years old when this song was released on his major label debut album, also titled Lie To Me
. In a 2017 interview with Lang
for Songfacts, he said: "I don't think I related to any of the songs until I was in my 20s, as far as life experience goes! At least not in a way where the meaning I could really understand. I wasn't necessarily singing from a place of experience - it was just more from a place of just singing music."
