"It's basically about the point we humans inevitably come to when we realize that the knots and twists in relationships simply can't be untangled, and we're left dangling with a massive question mark with no apparent resolution. Why? Why? Why? Haven't we all asked that question of ourselves and the universe?" - Annie Lennox
"It's about looking at the aftermath of things. After all this darkness and disappointment with the personal battles you've gone through... Contemplating the ashes of experience, and questioning what it was ever all about. It's like the remains of a building that's crashed and burned to the ground." - Annie Lennox
"I feel vulnerable about aging, but perhaps I can be like Edith Piaf, with that chanson sense of grief or melancholy. I think 'Why' has a little of that." - Annie Lennox
