This song is about the house where Dixie Chick Natalie Maines' grandmother used to live. Her grandmother had Alzheimer's disease, and the song is about memories of her triggered by walking through the house.
Neil Finn from Crowded House wrote this with The Dixie Chicks. Crowded House recorded the song for their 2007 album Time On Earth.
Natalie Maines told AOL Music about this song: "This is a sad song that tries to be sweet... It's about my grandmother, my Nonna who has Alzheimer's. She's been suffering from it for over ten years. It just seems like the worst way to end your life, when you can't remember any of it. But she touched a lot of people, and we all remember. So this song is about that: it's okay to forget, I'll try and carry on. Because when they first start realizing they are forgetting is the saddest time. They're embarrassed. So it's almost better when they don't know what's going on."
