In our interview with Marcy Playground lead singer/songwriter John Wozniak
, he said that this song is based on a true story about a cheerleader who killed herself. Said Wozniak: "That's a song that was written mainly, and conceptualized by Chris Temple. He was in a band called Lincoln. But yeah, the story is true. It was in like Ohio or somewhere. It was something he had read about; he started working on the song, and I helped him. It's not common that I co-write with people. I have to really appreciate what it is they're doing. They have to be good storytellers. And I found that Chris Temple is one of the best storyteller musician friends I've ever had. I fell in love with that song. But it was incomplete. It wasn't finished, and so we finished it."
