thanks to YM magazine for [most of] this info.

The album is about quote: "Relationships,being young, throwing parties, getting hurt for the first time, hating someone for leaving because it hurts so much, about all the things you go through for the first time when you're my age-or the second time or third time as you grow up. The album's about taking control, saying goodbye and moving on when you're down. It's about not being afraid."

I am not Mya---just a fan!
