Get Good

Album: Rabbits On The Run (2011)
  • Vanessa Carlton told American Songwriter magazine the lyrics for this song "came in one fell swoop." She added: "There's a line in the chorus that goes 'Don't you worry you'll soon be on the mend. That's no trick, that flicker of radiance.' Which is a response to Black Rook in Rainy Weather by (American poet) Sylvia Plath."
  • Carlton says that the song was inspired by an essay written by her cousin, and is for a friend who was contemplating a divorce.
