  • Lyrics
  • The video for this song is another allusion to The Wizard Of Oz (In "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland," Jewel mentions the "Goodbye yellow brick road"). The inside of the house is black and white, and outside is colorful. The pathway is made of yellow bricks. Similar to the story, the world outside of the house is originally a much nicer place, but slowly becomes less dreamlike and more cruel. >>

  • Jewel played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz in Concert: Dreams Come True, a 1995 benefit performance at Manhattan's Lincoln Center to aid the Children's Defense Fund. Jewel's co-stars were Jackson Browne as the Scarecrow, Roger Daltrey as the Tin Man, Nathan Lane as the Cowardly Lion, Natalie Cole as Glinda, Debra Winger as the Wicked Witch, Joel Grey as the Wizard, and Lucie Arnaz as Aunt Em.
  • Jewel wrote this with Kara DioGuardi and the song's producer, Greg Wells.
  • This peaked at #30 on the US Adult Top 40.
  • This was featured on the TV series Men in Trees in the 2006 episode "The Menaissance." It was also used in Las Vegas in the 2006 episode "Father of the Bride Redux," along with Jewel's "Drive to You" and "Only One Too."
