Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Phillips moving on from a relationship and reaching a place of independence where she is "alone but not lonely."

    How did she get there? "I started practicing yoga in 1991 and have just recently gotten around to the mediation part of it which is a great tool for dealing with grief or loneliness," she told Songfacts in 2016. "Making music and art are the best ways for me to be alone but not lonely."
