Now That You’re Gone

"That's not about Lance," Sheryl Crow told Rolling Stone, referring to her ex, Lance Armstrong. "I dedicate that one to Karl Rove." But while Crow was writing politically charged tunes at the time, this one — written after her breakup with the Tour de France champion cyclist — is pretty clearly about a failed relationship. While the song asserts, "Now that you're gone, I can breathe," another track from the album countered, "I can't stand all this freedom." Crow, who had also recently battled breast cancer, said the music helped her avoid getting bogged down by painful feelings.
