Furtado (from a press release to promote the album): "This plays around with the idea of wanting what you can't have, or wanting what's on the other side, something you dream of. And then you finally touch it, but, oh, no! It's too late; it's changed. There are also themes of deception and mistrust, but I prefer to express that kind of world-weariness with a light touch. The music has an understated hip-hop thing going on; the groove just chugs along, with simple instrumentation."
