Released in 2001 by both Aware and Columbia Records, the album quickly launched Mayer's career, with "No Such Thing" and "Your Body Is a Wonderland" both becoming Top 20 hits.
Cook and Mayer parted ways shortly thereafter, however, with Cook joining the Marshall Tucker Band's touring lineup for several years.
Now a solo artist by default, Mayer recorded several of the duo's songs, packaged them alongside a handful of his own compositions, and self-released the EP in 1999 under the title Inside Wants Out.

[Verse 1] I never liked this apple much It always seemed too big to touch I can't remember how I found My way before she came around [Chorus] I tell everyone I smile just because I've got a city love I found it in Lydia And I can't remember life before her name [Verse 2] She keeps a toothbrush at my place As if I had the extra space She steals my clothes to wear to work I know her hairs are on my shirts [Chorus] [Verse 3] The day She called up and came to me Covered in rain And dinnertime shadowing And as her clothes spun, we spooned And I knew I was through When I said "I love you" Friday evening, we've been drinking 2 a.m., I swear I might propose But we close the tab Split a cab And call each other up when we get home Falling asleep to the sound Of sirens [Chorus] [Bridge] From the battery To the gallery It's the kind of thing you only see In scented, glossy magazines [Outro] And I can't remember life before her name .
