On this track from Melissa Etheridge
's 11th studio album Fearless Love
, she sings, "I've laid down my burden, the one where I have something I should prove." Etheridge told Billboard
magazine that 22 years on from her self-titled debut she has shed that particular burden. "On my journey of doing this - recording, rock star, whatever all this stuff is that I do - there was always this feeling that there's more, there's a place that I have to get to," she said. "You come to realize the ones who are finding satisfaction in their work and enjoying the art that they're making are the ones that have laid down that burden of having something to prove. You start enjoying the work that you do. And that's what this album is for me."
