Ben Moody is credited to have written this song for Origin along with Amy and David. David Hodges sings backup vocals. In an EvBoard interview, Moody called this among one of the least favorite songs he had ever written. The story of Romeo and Juliet - as well as the Claire Danes/Leonardo DiCaprio movie version of it - is often regarded as the inspiration for this song.
Many EvBoarders agreed that "Anywhere" would make a great wedding song.
Original versions of Origin feature an "Anywhere" outtake in which Hodges sings the chorus horridly. The outtake can be accessed by rewinding the CD from the 30-second "Origin" intro that starts the album.
In a Reddit AMA thread in 2016, Amy said that when she listens to the song, she can picture "a Renaissance fair date".
The pre-release version of the song is 5:18 long, features Ben's backing vocals instead of David's and cuts the "yeah, yeah" outro. The Origin vinyl features the official version, as part of the Ultimate Collection box set.
