Album: Nobody's Daughter (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This tragic, gothic rock ballad is the most powerful and naked song Courtney Love has ever written about the feelings of loss over her late husband, Kurt Cobain. The NME asked Love why this has come out of her now, at this particular point in time. She replied: "As I said in 1991, I'm not psychic, but my lyrics certainly seem to be. It's really weird that way. All of it's hard. I never knew what it was all about, this record. And then last night I was doing a photoshoot and I was suddenly weeping. But I never knew what it was about. I just went with my soul."
