Album: Everybody (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from New York based indie pop singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson's 4th studio album, Everybody.
  • Everybody is a 12 song cycle chronicling an intense and volatile relationship, which is based on true live events. This is the final track in which the relationship has been dissolved. Having completed her emotional pilgrimage, Michaelson acknowledges the future's uncertainty but also discovers the prospect of revived love. She declared: "This is my big girl record. It's almost a loss of innocence. I'm 29 years old and I shouldn't worry if my mom and dad know that I kissed a boy from listening to one of my songs... This album is very autobiographical, it's about the past year-and-a-half of my life and choices that I've made."
