In an interview the two mentioned how easily the song came to them. Essentially, it just flowed out. I came to find out Vanessa Carlton and John McCauley (Deer Tick) are married! And not only that, but Stevie Nicks was the officiant! Stevie Nicks!!
Isn’t that incredible how two people so connected could create such a beautiful thing so fluidly and so raw that others can feel the raw emotion?
To me, this song is about letting go. So with that, I’ll say bye — bye to whatever I’m holding on to (and to fall). And say hi to winter and the new fresh start this year is going to bring.
