Love it. Intelligent, sincere and just plain well-written. I don’t know that Jewel is going to find that country music is any friendlier to smart women than the pop scene that she left behind, but she sounds more comfortable as a singer here than she ever did as a pop artist.
It’s so rare to have a song where the protagonist is actually interesting while still being fully believable. She sounds like an intelligent woman who is trying to figure out why she’s been compromising herself for so long.
