  • Hobler wrote this song about when he first started dating his wife. They got into a few fights early on in their relationship. He revealed to us the cause of their fights: "The interesting theme to a few of the arguments that we wound up having was that both of us were coming from well-intentioned places, but we still wound up hurting one another."

    He went on to tell us that he almost did not want to play that song live because he was embarrassed by it and that it made him feel extremely vulnerable. (Here's the full Ryan Hobler interview.)
