When this song was released, Sophie B. Hawkins told Q
it was about "love and death, someone close to me who died earlier this year."
The line, "I miss you making love to me right" is a good clue as to what kind of relationship she had with this person, but as we found out when we asker about the inspiration for her first hit, "Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover
," Hawkins sees these songs as existing on another plane. "The love affair's still going on," she told Q
. "It feels like there's no distance between us. I just talk to myself and they're there. Love and death, they're the big things that scare you though, aren't they?"
