I believe this song is an anthem to all women going thru their "mid life crisis", who have experienced the unfortunate course of relationships that go stagnant over the years. The stages described in the song outline the life changes of female adulthood: dating, the dreaded high school reunions, marriage, raising children...underlined by the fear women face of losing their "sex appeal", their relevance, and ultimately, the love of their life. I think we all can relate to the desperate pleas that the lyricist unfolds throughout the song as [she] tries to find the right "look" for the occasion, but also to regain [her] self-confidence and trust, as her relationship struggles in monotony. I perform this song in every one of my shows - it has become my signature tune.
