Songfacts®:

  • This piano ballad finds Amos making peace with haunting memories and self-doubt. "There are references to surviving, and how things from your past stay with you," she said. "Experiences stay with you. And you have to find a way to create with them. Or the voices in your head can intimidate you. Can make you doubt yourself. Self-doubt can be a harmful bully."
