Album: All That For This (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from Crystal Bowersox' sophomore studio album, All That for This. The record was recorded for Shanachie Records, and produced by Steve Berlin, who has previously worked with the likes of Los Lobos and Rickie Lee Jones.
  • Bowersox debuted the song during the February 5, 2013 episode of On Air with Ryan Seacrest. She told the radio personality. "This song means more to me than even I can completely comprehend. I feel like it's one of those tunes where the meaning will get deeper and deeper over time as you start to really live and actualize the words into your existence. It's about knowing in your heart that not knowing the outcome is perfectly acceptable; breathe. I'm still figuring it out, myself."
