"Everything I Do (Leads Me Back To You) is a complicated love song of sorts after finally realizing that to love another I must learn to love myself first. I wrote the song after listening to Lucinda Williams and admiring her sense of phrasing so much. Bruce Springsteen and I had done Rock Ballad together at one of his shows in Paris in 1992 and after 20 years of friendship it was the first time we sang together so I asked him to sing with me on this one because I thought our voices would blend well. He decided to sing that second verse without any prompting from me. I guess the "blow my tires out...rolling on my rims" imagery was irresistible."
