** "Paradise" has the line "Now my body is aching, and both ends of the candle burn." While "burning both ends of the candle" is an old idiom, the atmosphere of the song suggests this may be a reference to [[Creator/EdnaStVincentMillay Edna St. Vincent Millay's]] poem "First Fig", which helped to popularize the expression in its modern usage.

** "Sam Malone" is named after the bartender from {{Cheers}}. Further, the line "And I know some place I can go, where no one knows my name" references the show's theme tune, which has the repeated line "you wanna go where everybody knows your name".

'''City and Colour''' is [[CanadianMusic Canadian]] singer/guitarist Dallas Green's side project begun while he was still in the Post-Hardcore band {{Alexisonfire}}. (Technically, though, he'd begun composing the various songs that would eventually make their way onto the albums since his early teenage years.) The genesis of the act lay in the various demo tapes Dallas had recorded and distributed to a limited extent, which found their way to the internet eventually, prompting various Alexisonfire fans to voice their support of Dallas releasing a solo record. Dallas, not yet certain of branching off into a solo side project while still fully engaged with Alexisonfire, decided that if people liked the demos--some of which were of marginal quality--he'd at least record more put-together versions of them and release the tracks on a solo album. (These songs did not make their way onto Alexisonfire albums due to the fact that the band members had agreed early on that all five of them will be equally involved in the creative process for any songs that would be on the band's albums.) Not feeling comfortable with putting his real name on the record, he came up with the moniker [[PunnyName City And Colour]] to release the solo materials under. The resulting record, ''Sometimes'', met with positive reception, eventually going platinum in Canada.

* IAmTheBand: With a good deal of the songs being, in their essence, just Dallas with a guitar, this is generally true, moreso for the earlier albums. However, while Dallas [=IS=] the only full-time member of the band, he has had a lineup of frequent collaborators such as multi-instrumentalist (guitar/drums/keyboard/etc.) Daniel Romano, bassist Scott Remila, and drummer Dylan Green (no relation).

** "Unbeliever" similarly seems to take many cues from "Silver and Gold", which also makes sense in that the last lines in the third verse of "Silver and Gold" goes thus: "For suddenly, it was all so clear to me: There was '''nothing left in which to believe''."
