This is a tale of escape and hope. People can find themselves in all manner of situations that are not good for them. Sometimes, rather than accept life as it currently is, things must change. Finding the courage to leave and head off into an uncertain but hopefully brighter future is a hard thing to do.
This song was based on a guitar part written by Oliver Day. As soon as Libby heard it, she said the beat reminded her of the rhythm of windscreen wipers and she pictured a woman driving on a lonely highway in a wide, open American landscape. There is no going back. Eventually the storms both outside and inside pass and the road ahead is calmer and clearer.
