This song is about the negative voice in your head that fills you with self-doubt, and the struggle to tune that out. Playing small venues forced Liz Longley to confront this challenge. In our interview with Longley, she explained: "Unfortunately there are a lot of times when I can't quiet my mind and I'm constantly worried about what someone's face means or why they pulled out their phone. Am I boring them? It's a lot of negative self talk. So that song serves as a checkpoint for me in my set: just quiet my mind, do what I love to do and not let my self-doubt take over and take away from the joy of getting to do what I love to do. Over the years I've gotten better at it and learned to be in the moment and not listen to that negative talk."
Longley wrote and performed this song years before she got a record deal. By the time she signed with Sugar Hill Records in 2014, she had thoroughly road tested the song; it appeared on her self-titled debut album with the label in 2015. The album was recorded in Nashville with a group of top session players including Michael Rhodes on bass, JT Corenflos on guitar, and John Hobbs on piano.
