This campy, banjitar-led romp is one of two songs penned by Pink and her frequent collaborator Billy Mann for Cher's Closer To The Truth album. "These songs, I just loved from five seconds into them," Cher said of Pink's contributions. "She's just a great singer and she's great songwriter – she's the total package. I understood them, and when you hear them, you'll understand why I understood them. They're so personal, but they work for both of us."
Pink, who shares the same management as Cher, also provides backing vocals on the cut.
The title of the album came from a line in this song: "There's a gypsy in me that keeps on roaming, and there's an anger as I get closer to the truth."
Closer to the Truth debuted on the Billboard 200 at #3, Cher's highest entry as a solo artist on the album chart. The singer had previously never gone higher than #4 with her solo albums reaching that position with both Believe in 1999 and The Very Best of Cher in 2003.
