This was inspired by Amos' longtime female friend Beenie (who's also mentioned as the pot-smoking sleepover companion in "Jackie's Strength
"). In her VH1 Storytellers
special, the singer described their friendship as a marriage and called Beenie the love of her life. She explained: "My husband understands this, that we're married. We're absolutely married. And I adore her with all my heart. And she's dated some idiots. And I hope you're watching. I want you to know what I think of you and in another life, I'll absolutely kick your ass. And I'm going to kick it right now actually, because this is for her and I'm in love with her."
