Jesse Lacey on Soco Amaretto Lime
Interviewer: The last track on your CD holds more meaning to me than possibly any song ever written. It truly is classic, especially with my going off to college and leaving my girlfriend and friends behind. Can you tell me the story behind it?
Lacey: Yeah, I originally wrote that song for my friend Peter. He's one of the only kids who really recognizes the way we, as well as all our friends, have changed in the last couple years. It's something we used to sit up and talk about all night. But also, about the time I was writing it I had just started seeing my girlfriend. And as it turned out, I remember a lot of people giving her a lot shit for wanting to be with me. But it was only cause they were being spiteful, and old, and envious. Cause they are just boring people. That's where the last lines in the song came from. Those are my favorite.
