Everything Wrong

Album: Come Home to Mama (2012)
  • Martha Wainwright closes her third album, Come Home To Mama, with this heartbreaking track on which the singer pours her heart out to her baby son Arcangelo, warning him that as he grows up that he will find a world where parents cheat on each other, before passing away. However, his mother's love will remain unconditional. "That was the last song I wrote, and it came out through a lot of tears," Wainwright told Spinner. "I just want things to be easier for him. Life is hard, and I want him to feel protected."
