Album: The Lion The Beast The Beat (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This funky song finds Potter ruminating on her life as a touring musician. "Everywhere I go, the second I get there I'm leaving," she lamented to The Boot. "I wanted to treat my lifestyle and my job, which is touring, as an addiction and a weakness that I can't control. It's a compulsion to run away from something, even if it's a good thing. You want to stay, you want to make it last, but you can't."
