Songfacts®:

  • This gospel-tinged tune is about Rumer's struggles to find happiness at a time when, ostensibly, Rumer had gotten the big breaks she'd always wanted. "I was railing against people telling me how lucky I am," the songstress explained. "It's hard to explain. 'Yes, I'm lucky, but not for the reasons you think. I'm lucky because I've still got my sanity and my friends.'"
