In Their Words: “This song was inspired by the sound of the train that rolls by my parents’ home in northwest Montana. I was strumming my guitar to match the rhythm of the train and I just started singing this story. It was unlike anything I had written before. It wasn’t my story, yet it felt very real and very personal to me. I was singing about this girl’s life spiraling out of control, with alcoholism playing a key role in that. I didn’t sit down with the intention of writing a song about this topic, but I have watched people I love wander down the dark path of addiction and have seen that there is often some element of emotional pain tied to it. My hope in writing this song is that it brings a sense of humanity to the struggle and that we recognize there is so much more to substance abuse than what we see on the surface.” — Michelle Rivers
