Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Etheridge channeling some of her feelings about the high-profile breakups that she has been through. "That's what I do - my work has always been very cathartic," she told Atlantic City Insiders. "'It used to be I'd write that stuff and people didn't know what I was talking about. It's just a little more transparent these days because of gossip media that lets people know more stuff about me. They can certainly read it however they wish."
