  • This track from Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne's fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby finds the singer exploring what it means to push through the tough times and emerge stronger for it. She described the song to Billboard magazine as "different… but not different to stray away from who I am and what I am."
  • On October 9, 2009, Lavigne filed for divorce following three years of marriage to Deryck Whibley, the frontman for Sum 41. Despite their personal difficulties, her former husband produced eight of the tracks on Goodbye Lullaby. Artist Direct asked Whibley whether it was awkward doing production work for his ex. He replied: "I did my best. That's all I can say. I didn't write anything. She wrote the songs and gave them to me to produce and I did whatever I thought they needed. It's different, but also the same. I approached it the same way I do my own stuff. I have a studio in the house. She would have a song and I would jump in the studio and record it quick, but the difference was that I don't have the final say on the song. That was different than how I do it with my own band. The way I record it was the same way I do my own stuff."
