In this song, Melanie dreams of leaving the music business behind to become a farmer, living a simple life without pretense. In a Songfacts interview with Melanie
, she explained that she wrote it as a reaction to her fame.
"Here I was working and working and working, and it was nothing," she said. "It's just incredible when you're the biggest thing since sliced bread and all these people are around you, and then when you don't have a hit, they're gone. They're off to the next big thing. At one point, it was really bothering me that people like being your friend when you're the hottest thing, and then you wouldn't hear from them until you got another hit. I thought, if you're looking for love, the music business might not be the place."
