When Kellin Quinn was young his father walked out on his family. Now the Sleeping with Sirens vocalist is a father to his own child and stepfather to his wife's two children from a previous relationships. So, although this isn't a song specifically about Kellin's own childhood, when he wrote about a father walking out on his children, he knew how it felt. He explained to Kerrang! magazine: "When you have to watch someone else – especially a child – go through the same disappointments you went through, it's tough. It opened up a lot of feelings I haven't felt in the long time and I really wanted to write about it. I really wanted to write something real."
Hailey Bryan from UtahWow... I had no idea that Kellin went through that. It reminds me of my own childhood. Did anyone else hear pain in his voice when he says "It's been seven years wishing that you'd drop a line"? Anyway, Love SWS
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
