Album: candycoatedwaterdrops (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • This song appears on Contemporary Christian act Plumb's second album candycoatedwaterdrops.
  • This song was written by frontwoman Tiffany Lee (née Arbuckle) about a girl coping with being molested as a child. In 2000 Lee decided that she wanted to leave the music industry. A few hours before what she thought to be her final concert she received a note from a girl, which said "'Whatever you do, I just want you to never forget that you have changed someone's life." The note inspired Tiffany to remain in the music industry and in 2003 she signed to Curb Records as a solo artist, but still recording under the name Plumb.
  • In 2001 the American trance duo Plummet covered this song. Their club version was a hit in Europe then took off in the UK, where it peaked at #12 in 2003.
