  • Lyrics
  • Clarkson said on her record label's website that the title of this folk-blues number came from one of her favorite Bible verses: "Be still and know that I am here." She explained: "It's all about stopping things, slowing down to appreciate life. Everything just goes so fast, especially in this business. There's just no time to be alone for a moment of quiet. That's why I don't live in L.A. and have always lived in Texas. It's about getting away from the rat race and carving out a space for yourself."
