  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval: "We met a young man through the Make-A-Wish foundation when we were recording this song. He came out to San Diego and hung out with us. We took him all over town and then back to the studio. Truby taught him the chords on guitar and we got him in the vocal booth to scream out in the chorus. He's actually on the song with us - so, no matter what, he'll be with us forever." >>
