What Would Happen

Charted: 49 46

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, Brooks wonders what would happen if we didn't prize our fantasies so much. She said: "It's easy to fall in love with fantasies. But eventually that perfection disintegrates, and we begin to see that real people with real personalities can be so much greater than we ever imagined."
  • This was the follow-up to Meredith Brooks' big hit "Bitch," and her only other song to chart.
