The song was developed during the 2001-2002 demos and later released as track #9 on Fallen. It is the only Fallen song to date that has never been performed in a concert, because of the personal subject matter. However, a theme from the song has been used in the beginning of a few live shows in 2003 as the intro to the song "Going Under".
This is what Amy said about the passing of her sister in a 2004 interview and how it inspired her to become an artist:
“When that happened, my whole perception of life changed. It sounds stupid, but that was when I became an artist. The music is my attempt to heal myself. Things like that can destroy you, or you can get through it.” Lee’s gray-blue eyes fill with tears. Her voice wobbles. […] She says she won’t reveal her sister’s name, because it would be too weird to see it in print. It would upset her mother, she says, and – you never know – fans might try to find her grave.
“My sister’s death taught me how short life can be, and it has driven me to achieve things. I have a list of 50 thing I want to achieve. Not necessarily in entertainment, just personal goals. Life's fragility drives me on.”
