This emotionally reassuring lullaby about not letting go of childhood imagination was inspired by Amos' 13-year-old daughter, Tash Hawley. "When she was younger, the conversations of course were different," said the singer. "The exposure in the last few years to what she's reading, listening to, watching, and how she sees the world – she has become a muse for me. Because I look through her eyes and am exposed to things that I wouldn't be exposed to if I were left to my own choices."
"So watching what inspires the conversations that 13, 14-year-olds are having is really interesting," Amos continued. "And how to grow up with your imagination intact, how to not have that destroyed, is very much Rose Dover's story."
