  • Lyrics
  • This emotional, circle-of-life story finds Crow describing the guilt a mother feels balancing work and family. "Last year my then six-year-old happened to wake as I was leaving the house at 5.30 am and he just dropped to his knees and started crying, 'You're not leaving,'" she told The Daily Telegraph. "It's not normal for a child to have his mom leave and I made a promise to him in that moment: 'I will figure out a way to bring you guys with me.'"

    "It's hard being a single mom," Crow added. "It's the best and hardest job in the world. I'm not a mom who phones it in or hands over to the nanny. I make myself emotionally available to my children 24 hours a day."
