I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… I wanted to write a song about something we’ve all done: making mistakes. The character I take on in the song isn’t a bad person, but has regrets about some of the choices they’ve made. In the end, the character realizes we’re all guilty of deception, and that there’s more value in looking past each other’s faults than holding on to them.
