All In

Album: Smoke and Mirrors (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from American alternative rock band Lifehouse's fifth studio album, Smoke and Mirrors. The song's narrator has reconciled with his girl after a break in their relationship. He realizes that he needs her and vows that they are not going to spilt up again - this time he's "all in for life."
  • Lifehouse bass player Bryce Soderberg told About.com: "'All In' was the last song that was written for the record. Funny enough it wound up being the first song on the record. It was the puzzle piece that was missing on this album to kick it off and kind of show people, 'Whoa, this is Lifehouse and they're back.' That song kind of hits you in the face."
