HARRISON wrote this song when she was 19 after one of her first loves broke up with her claiming that he was ‘ following his head’. The boy came from a very religious family and HARRISON felt constantly judged by them.
“It was an uphill battle trying to gain their acceptance and I couldn’t help but feel that his parent’s judgment of me filtered through to their son.” HARRISON said.
Thus the opening line ‘ Please don’t judge me’ with religious insinuations throughout the song.
Friend and Sydney Music Producer at Vienna Records, Michael McGlynn, said “that would make a great song” after showing it to him in 2002. Since then, HARRISON vowed to record it.
The guitar-centric song has a driven Natalie Imbruglia / Crowded House feel with a slide guitar solo at the end. The pop song serves to remind us that actions are worth more than words.
