People magazine interviews edit

(April 1, 2015 issue) edit

  • [On Lyme disease] I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed, My friends asked, "What’s wrong?" I didn’t know. I had no idea a bug bite could do this, I was bedridden for five months. I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move, I thought I was dying. There were definitely times I couldn’t shower for a full week because I could barely stand. It felt like having all your life sucked out of you. They were asking about me since I was MIA, so I mentioned to one fan directly that I wasn’t feeling good, The get-well messages and videos they sent touched me so deeply. This was a wake-up call, I really just want to enjoy life from here on out.

(February 25, 2019 issue) edit

  • I’ve gone through so much, (referring to Lyme disease and divorce from Chad Kroeger) it put things in perspective and showed me how much the small things in life—friends, love, family, just your health—matter the most. (Referring to the debuting of album Head Above Water) It gave me a purpose, and made me find myself all over again. I'd give anything just to relax with a glass of wine 'cause it just means so much to me. There's still a part of me that loves punk rock.
  • I was hanging out with a guy and he said; "You're a dumb blonde" and I was like; "Ah, Thanks!" I think it's a good slap in the face to someone who can't handle a strong independent woman.

Song lyrics edit

Let Go (2002) edit

Let Go (4 June 2002), Arista Records
  • I get all these loser preps coming up to me asking for autographs and all this crap, and I really want to tell them, 'My music is not for people like you!
    • "People"
  • Chill out, what're you yelling for? Lay back. It's all been done before, and if? You could only let it be? You will see, I like you the way you are. When we're driving in your car and you're talking to me one and one. But you've become somebody else, like everyone else! You're watching your back, like you can't relax. You're trying to be cool; you look like a fool to me.
    • "Complicated"
  • Tell me, why do you have to go and make things so complicated? I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else; get's me frustrated. Life's like this: You fall and you crawl and you break and you take what you get and you turn it into. Honestly, you promised me I'm never going to find you faking. No, no! No!
    • "Complicated"
  • He was a boy, she was girl. Can I make it any more obvious? He was a punk; she did ballet. What more can I say? He wanted her, she'd never tell secretly she wanted him as well. All of her friends stuck up their nose, they had a problem with his baggy clothes. He was a skater boy. She said: 'see you later, boy'. He wasn't good enough for her. She had a pretty face, but her head was up in space. She needed to come back down to Earth!
    • "Sk8er Boi"
  • He was a skater boy. She said: 'see you later, boy'. He wasn't good enough for her. Now, he's a superstar. Slamming on his guitar, to show pretty face what he's worth.
    • "Sk8er Boi"
  • Sorry, girl. But, you missed out. Well tough luck; that boy's mine now. We are more than just good friends; this is how the story ends. Too bad that you couldn't see; see the man that boy could be. There is more than meets the eye; I see the soul that is inside. He was a boy, she was girl. Can I make it any more obvious? We are in love, haven't you heard? How, we rock each other's world!
    • "Sk8er Boi"
  • I'm standing on the bridge; I'm waiting in the dark. I thought that you'd be here by now. There's nothing but the rain, no footsteps on the ground. I'm listening, but there's no sound. Isn't anyone trying to find me? Won't somebody come take me home?
    • "I'm With You"
  • Why is everything so confusing? Maybe I'm just out of my mind. Won't you, take me by the hand? Take me somewhere new. I don't know who you are, but I? I'm with you, I'm with you.
    • "I'm With You"
  • If you're trying to turn me into something else? It's easy to see, I'm not down with that.
    • "Nobody's Fool"
