These Three Days

Album: World Without Tears (2003)

Songfacts®:

  • Williams sings here of a three day relationship unexpectedly cut short. During an interview with NPR's Bob Edwards, she was asked: "Those Three Days, Somebody thought this was going to go on longer than that?" Williams replied: "Right but it didn't, and she was pretty hurt and angry, she had a chip on her shoulder about it and she needed to write a song about it to get it out of her system... 'Scorpions call across my screen,' you have to sort of read between the lines but that has to do with scorpion, as in Aquarius, Scorpio Whoever that is, yeah, he knows. That got my point across. That's what happens when you get involved with a songwriter." >>
