Tell Me I'm Wrong

Album: The Way I Fell In (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from the New York Pop-Rock quintet The Morning Of's second album, The Way I Fell In. This song was inspired by the 2004 romantic fantasy movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Co-vocalist Jessica Leplon explained to Artist Direct: "Justin (Wiley co-vocalist) had never seen the movie initially and we already had lyrics to 'Tell Me I'm Wrong' but they weren't really hitting for us. It wasn't sitting well with us, but we watched Eternal Sunshine when we were out in California recording and we wrote the lyrics. I'm glad how it turned out."
  • Leplon told Artist Direct that she gets song ideas when driving. She explained: "I like writing lyrics in the car. When I think of something, I'll put it in my own phone. I open the memo pad and type ideas down. It's weird [Laughs]. When I get home, I'll write the idea down in case something happens to the phone. Usually, I always write in a car. Your mind spins good ideas while you're driving and all of these words pop up."
