Loeb: "David is one of my closest friends. I've known him since I was a young teenager. We did plays together in high school, and even went to prom together. We went to college together and then moved to NYC at the same time. 'I told David I won't die' is a literal reference to the way I was feeling at the time - sometimes really depressed, but that, don't worry, I wouldn't let anything drastic happen to me. Many years ago when I wrote the song, I played music to help me get through depression, and to express myself, and work through difficult feelings. Also, it was almost like something I repeated - a mantra - to remind myself to get through the day. Like in 'Snow Day,' 'You're not too tired for this life, and it's not gonna matter if you fall down twice.'"
