The Indigo Girls write separately, and Amy Ray composed this one. In our interview with Ray
, she explained: "I just wrote that about evolution and growth in a person. Just, break free. It was also to dissolve myself stylistically into another realm of music that I really like: rock and punk, Patti Smith, and all these artists that are not in the Indigo Girls world. I wanted to experiment with that stuff. That was one of the first songs that was written that way."
