Lost In You

Album: Life Starts Now (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the fourth single from Three Days Grace's third studio album, Life Starts Now. It was released for radio airplay on February 1, 2011 and on March 15th on iTunes.
  • Life Starts Now found the Canadian rockers playing with different material and this song finds them expressing a warmer sentiment than is typically found in the band's music. While electric guitars still play a prominent role, the focus is on Adam Gontier's voice and a well written melody. Said drummer Neil Sanderson to Noisecreep: "We wanted to think outside the box. Part of that is, as a band, we're a little bit sick of the sound that a lot of bands go into the studio and default to, like layer upon layer of hard panned guitars that multiply in the chorus. It just starts to sound really mechanical and over-produced.
    So we wanted to make sure that all of the parts were really together, as far as the riffs and the music and everything before we got into the studio. We really spent a lot of time on those parts because our goal was to make it sound big without having a lot of stuff actually in there."
