Talking
about his inspiration behind Confess,
Lewis wrote, in a press release:

 

“One
winter I crashed my motorcycle , with a friend on the back. I shouldn’t have
been riding that day, but I was young and fearless of the black roads, fast and
easy in my ways. As the bike slipped from under us my head filled with
words. The slow motion moments of calm just after surprise and just before
regret are bliss. I remember in that moment I wanted to say everything to him.
How could I say everything in a split second? How could I bury my words in
his heart?”

 

“I
got a new bike and went to LA to record what is now called Confess. I took the bike out at 6AM
 one morning after not having done much riding in the couple years between
Forget and Confess. I noticed my head clearing
as I came slowly down a hill where the road around a reservoir began. I pulled
back slowly on the throttle with my right hand, and felt the bike start to come
to life. My head was still crystal clear…nothing. As I kicked the bike
into 3rd, I pulled almost all the way back and jumped forward leaning in
towards the gas tank, fighting the wind. I got up to 75 and saw that no one was
out but the runners and their four legged friends, the sidewalks became a
blur of barking dogs and heads all turning. My mind was empty. I put the bike in 4th and hit 90. The engine
jack hammered under my legs. My mind was clear. I inched toward 100 on the
speedometer and punch the last five. TON UP! My mind is filled with words. My
heart is full of love. This is where i want to be. I want to stay here, and I
want to tell you everything.”
