Songfacts®:

  • Patsy Cline is a big influence on Carlile, who wrote this song for her third album, Give Up The Ghost. When we asked her if she was channeling Cline on this track, she replied: "I was thinking more along the lines of Radiohead. But when I sing, it brings that Patsy Cline/Roy Orbison element to it no matter what I do. But I think, eerily, Radiohead and Patsy Cline have more in common than most people fully understand."
