Songfacts®:

  • Jesca Hoop is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist from Northern California. This tribute to her late mother is a track from her second album, Hunting My Dress. Dark songs like this one are balanced by more upbeat tracks such as the lively funk beat of "Four Dreams."

    "I'm real fond of contrast. I don't want to be a folk artist," Hoop explained to The Independent: "I'd rather play characters and have more fun with the medium than stick to a genre."
