Songfacts®:

  • The message of this song is to fight through adversity. It reminds you to be careful around what you think is good ("In the sweetest child there's a vicious streak") and to look for the good in everything ("In the shakiest will there's a core of steel"). >>

  • Larry from Ft. Pierce, FlNothing is ever truly properly or entirely represented by what is perceived by looking at outward appearances.

    Outward perceptions can be--and often are--deceiving in that they are comprised of those values we most wish to convey about ourselves and NOT those truths (dirty little truths)that are most often swept into the dark corners of the soul.
  • Stacie from High Ridge, Mothough we might have precious little, its still precious!
