This ballad with an Irish folk flavor features a variety of instruments including Trumpets, Trombones, Violins, Violas and Cellos. The use of strings on this and several other Amaryllis tracks was down to producer Rob Cavallo. Drummer Barry Kerch recalled to Alternative Addiction: "He thought that one of the songs was missing something, he didn't know what for a while and then he shouted 'f--k! I know, it needs strings' and then it was strings on this song, that song the other song. On other songs it was horns, or a synthesizer on others. We had a thirty seven piece orchestra on this record and one song had a fifteen piece horn section. Why? well because why not. It worked, it's fun and it's experimental."
This song is about being comfortable in your own skin. Kerch explained to Alternative Addiction: "It's autobiographical about Brent (Smith, vocals) saying hey, I'm really not alright, I'm a bit crazy but I'm alright with it."
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
