"Never There" is a slow, sincere anthem dedicated to single parents everywhere. In its accompanying video, Deryck Whibley performs the song in an abandoned house while remembering his own upbringing.
In a press release, he shared the following statement about the tune:
I never wanted to write this song, it just kind of poured out of me. I tried to fight it at first but there was no stopping it. I could tell I was writing about my dad, who I've never met and throughout my life it has always been a subject that I don't really think about or care about. It has never really bothered me and when I started thinking about why it never bothered me, I realized it was because my mum was so great and I have such a loving relationship with her. She was so strong as a single mother for my whole life that I never needed to think about my dad.
