• According to Christina, this album is more personal than her others - she co-wrote 17 of the songs on it. Christina co-wrote this with Linda Perry of The Four Non-Blonds. In the song she talks about her mother being her "shield" and her childhood growing up with an abusive father.
  • On the MTV show Diary, Christina said she had recorded the song lying down in one take, and that she began to weep. She said you can hear it on the album. >>
