: "That's really the first time that we've used the piano to write. I don't think we've really had other songs we've done that. The main part of that song has been around for a while. It was actually written on guitar originally, but I translated it over to piano one day and it just sounded really good. It felt like the part was made for the piano."
"Last to Know' is probably one of our favorites on the record," added singer-guitarist Adam Gontier. "Musically, it was [Neil's] song. He had a demo, or a piano version of it, and he gave it to me. I sat with it for a couple of hours in a hotel room somewhere and just plugged in and sang a bunch of melodies over it and it came together pretty fast."
