The story behind the song? Per Matt:
“The Boy Who Lives Backwards” basically came out of a regret. I was going to take some summer classes at NYU and met a girl the first day in the dorm through a friend. She’d had a bad day and her friend wasn’t around so I decided to try and cheer her up. We had a really incredible night but I was so shy at the time and thought she had a boyfriend so I didn’t ask her out. Years later I thought of that while singing a melody and began thinking about regrets we have in life – the person we didn’t kiss, the bully on the playground we didn’t stand up to, the clever comebacks that we wished we’d said in an argument and that’s what the song is about. It also really reminds me of New York City in the fall which is my favorite time of year.”
