This song was co-written by and features Rodney Crowell, who is Emmylou Harris
' longtime live guitarist. Jewel said: "I've been a big fan of Rodney's and we finally got together to write. He came up with that first verse and we liked the idea of this being a mini-play. It's very theatrical - with a storyline that conveys the aftermath of a woman's affair on a broken relationship devoid of communication. It's also about the complexities of love and the willingness, courage and ability to engage yourself in it fully or not."
"I think it's difficult to do a male-female duet. It's hard to strike the right note that isn't just sort of saccharine. But Rodney's a very deep and thoughtful writer and very interested in truth, so I loved that this wasn't a typical duet."
