After All

Album: The Green World (2000)
  • Speaking to American Songwriter magazine in 2012, Dar Williams discussed this song about her return from clinical depression, which she suffered from in her early 20s. "I describe depression as 'a winter machine that you go through and then, you catch your breath and winter starts again,'" she said. "It actually helped me to hear how many people could relate to this rock bottom time and then to the footholds and insights that brought me up to safety."
