Without You

Album: Steel Magnolia (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • When you work with your girlfriend, sometimes you find yourself doing things your way and then asking for forgiveness later. That's what interview with Joshua Scott Jones of Steel Magnolia told us about creating songs with Meghan Linsey. And "Without You" is and example. Said Jones: "I started that one when I came home real late one night, or early, probably… actually. It was in the middle of a fight and I thought I'd lost everything that we'd worked on. So that's where that song started, the genesis of that song, the verses. And then I kind of stole the chorus from a song that I'd written with Meghan and Van Preston, and I inserted the chorus of that song into the verses of 'Without You.' And I just asked for forgiveness later."
