Album: Three Days Grace (2003)


  • At a 2006 show in Vancouver, lead singer Adam Gontier stated that this song was created after the band stayed at a hotel that they where told was haunted. They laughed this off and thought nothing of it, but then he discovered that there was a spook there named Emily who scared the living hell out of him every night he stayed there. >>
