Orton penned this old-time waltz for her daughter, Nancy, who was born in mid-December 2006. It finds the singer looking forward to "this beautiful life we'll build by hand, from scraps and shards and broken strands."
We hear the mum singing of, "the hours when spiders mend their webs." Orton told The Observer that she came up with that particular line in the middle of a night, when Nancy had finally fell back to sleep and she was totally wide awake. "I looked on the back porch and there was this spider working away at its web, fixing it," Orton recalled. "I knew that I should go to bed myself, mend my own webs, but I found it was irresistible to go up to my room and pick up my guitar. It was illicit. And I knew I would pay for it the next day when Nancy would be up about five. But I found that I could make connections that I maybe wouldn't normally make."
