  • This was written about the death of Christine Gail Hinton, who was Crosby's girlfriend, muse and partner. Crosby explained to Mojo Magazine January 2008 why he wrote about such a tragic subject: "I guess you can feel exposed but what else are you going to write about? If you are going to write and record material which moves people it needs to be pulled from real life. You don't really have a choice."
