In Their Words: "The Icelandic writer Roni Horn spoke of the world as being 'blue at it’s edges and it’s depths … the color of that distance is the color of emotion, the color of solitude and desire … the color of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go …' This song attempts to speak to these things — how they make us who we are and how deeply we need people in our lives to understand these things in us." — Mary Chapin Carpenter
