We came from a wall of guitars, and the sound has evolved. He adds: The only time I really express my feelings is when I’m writing music. That’s how it’s been since I was a little kid. This song is about the moment when it becomes okay to say,I love you.” At the same time, there’s the hand-clap stomp ofLife of the Party,which lives up to its moniker.
