Songfacts®:

  • This Nicolle Gaylon and Nicole Witt penned cut finds the 17-year-old American Idol runner-up singing of a girl confined to her bedroom after being disciplined. Lauren told Taste of Country: "I love this song because it's playful and young girls are going to love it. It talks about how a girl kisses a neighbor and her dad grounds her. The girl is reading Cosmo magazine that her mother doesn't want her to read. She is in her room growing her wings, becoming who she is behind closed doors and she's just about ready to fly away. I feel like that is who I was six months ago. I feel like I've formed my wings and now I'm flying. This song is really playful and fun. I just love it."
