“’Cause flowers, don’t grow without the rain / And goodness, don’t grow without the pain,” vows Mandy Lee, pulling out the weeds of her own life. The MisterWives lead vocalist lugs around her baggage, particularly a heartbreak that left a nasty bruise on her heart. The dark clouds circled in and nearly swallowed her.
But she made a choice. “I’ve been, down on my knees / Prayin’, things I don’t believe,” she whips out a soulful turn on the hook. “Hopin’ that it’ll save me… so I decide to be happy.” OK, sure, it’s never that easy, but it’s a good place to start.
