Story Behind The Song
After a painful and dramatic relapse, it was cathartic to compose something extremely personal, honest and exposing that admitted there are in fact lonely moments in an otherwise happy and successful loner life.
This is a gorgeous, epic, intensely personal black-key ballad that starts with fluid, rolling piano and builds to a dramatic string arrangement of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" intensity with rock drums (played by Gregg Willliams who played drums on Sheryl Crow's masterful "Globe Sessions" album) and guitar. Unusually confessional lyrics match a vulnerable, beautiful lead vocal with an unconventional chordal turn in the choruses of this stirring, powerful song.
