Album: Burn Burn (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Our Lady Peace loves playing this song live. In 2012, their guitarist Steve Mazur told us that of all of the songs he'd written with the band over the course of a decade, this song is the one he was the most proud of. Explaining why, Mazur says, "It was a real band effort. I thought it had a great mood and all four of us on that one were swinging and coming up with stuff. That's one we play live and we still very much feel and love."
