  • Lyrics
  • This is the opening track of Sheryl Crow's ninth studio album, Be Myself. The lyrics on the record address some topical concerns. 'There's a lot about the intrusion of technology and how it messes with a relationship,' she told the Mail on Sunday's Event magazine."
  • The very first line, on this song is "I told you to be discreet, but you went to the world and you broadcast me." It is, Crow said, "about the idea that you can sell somebody out over the internet."
